The Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that the Federal Government will only address areas within the White Paper report of the Lagos Judicial Panel on Police Brutality that concerns it.
Adesina said this during an interview on Channels Television this morning November 22 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.
There is an Attorney General of the Federation who will advise and the needful would be done,” Adesina said
The presidential spokesperson, 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.”he said.
