In the comments credited to the erudite former Speaker on state of insecurity in the country he took to the cleaners the security policies of the present federal administration led by General Muhhamadu Buhari. According to Tambuwal who set record as the first leader of the House of Representatives to leave office without any financial or other scandals levelled against his name, the policing policy in the country has failed and should be reorganised.
