Shekarau, also a former Minister of Education, made the call on Thursday which featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.

“I have gone through that document. It was during (Goodluck) Jonathan’s government. He personally handed it over publicly at Eagle Square to President (Muhammadu) Buhari and nothing was done about it.

“I’ll advise President Tinubu to dust it up. May be set up a small committee to review it and see things that are doable. Most of these things that we are talking about are there.”

The former Minister advocated state police and restructuring that “allows bottom-up structure of government. There should be some participation of the people correctly”.

Shekarau added that Nigeria needs community policing owned by the community, while the government would be the coordinator.
