Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has advocated the review of the concept of citizenship to place emphasis on the place of residence in order to suit the current exigencies and for the benefit of all.
Governor Ahmed who made the call while playing host to Committee on Police Recruitment in Ilorin, also expressed dismay over the challenges of citizenship as it affects residents in an area. The
governor argued further that there was urgent need to address the problem with a view to cementing unity among Nigerians.
Governor Ahmed raised alarm over what he described as proliferation of fake certificates and suggested a verification exercise to scrutinize applicants for the police job and other recruitment exercises.
According to the governor, “the verification of certificate is very germane in order to guide against criminals getting their ways into, especially our security system”.
Speaking earlier, Team Leader, Dr Femi Ogunsola told the governor that they were in the state in respect of the on-going police recruitment exercise.
Ogunsola explained that the committee was put in place by police service commission to oversee on-going police recruitment to ensure a hitch-free exercise.
He told the governor that the committee had received petitions from concerned Nigerians over forged certificates.
