The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary yesterday, directed the Acting Clerk, Olalekan Onafeko, to send a clean copy of the bill to the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for assent.

Shortly after the passage, the Majority Leader, Sanai Agunbiade and Chairman, House Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, Public Petitions, Victor Akande, addressed journalists.

  
Agunbiade said: “The bill is essential to sustain the standard for law enforcement agencies and to ensure that enforcement activities are upgraded in line with present realities.”
  
Akande, on his part, said: “We always complain that the law enforcement officers are not properly trained. So, the Executive and Legislature decided to look into the lapses that we see in tandem with what should be so that we can have better law enforcement agencies.”
