#ENDSARS panel Report: We’ll address reports that concerns the FG – Adesina
Nov. 22, 2021
Presidential aide, Femi Adesina has said that the Federal Government will only address areas that concern it, following the official submission of the report of the Judicial Panel of Enquiry on Police Brutality.
The media adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday during an interview on Channels Television’s Breakfast Programme, Sunrise Daily said this while explaining steps which the Federal Government will take in handling the situation.
“What would happen is that when the states come up with pronouncements on that panel report, that would then be of interest to the Federal Government.
“Definitely, when the reports come out the ones that are Federal in nature will be considered. There are some things that would be Federal in nature, the Federal Government would tackle that but things that are state in nature, the state government will handle.
Adesina however, said he is not aware if some states that have completed their inquiry have so far submitted their reports to the Federal Government.
“I am not quite sure of that, but I know that areas that would affect the Federal Government will be looked into by the Federal Government.”
Speaking on the idea behind the setting up of the probe panel, Mr Adesina said that the Federal Government did not give a directive for their set-up but it was just “an idea” suggested to the state government.
“It couldn’t have been a directive because the Federal Government doesn’t have the power. It was just an idea,” he said.
