The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum has declared the Nigeria Police Trust Fund (Establishment) Act, 2019 illegal.

The Forum called for a repeal of sections of the Police Act recently accented to by President Muhammadu Buhari, citing constitutional breaches.

A copy of the communique was made available to reporters in Abuja, on Wednesday.

The Forum “implored Mr. President and the National Assembly to repeal Section 4(1) of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund (Establishment) Act, 2019 which purports to authorize the President to deduct 0.5% of the total revenue accruing to the Federation Account for the benefit of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund, as it is patently unconstitutional,” it read.

“The beneficiaries of the Federation Account are the Federal, States, and Local Governments ONLY. More creative funding options should be explored.”
