He said the aim was to put in place a permanent structure that would help effectively control the civil unrest.

The minister said the idea was to give the people the opportunity to channel their grievances about the misconduct of police personnel to the appropriate quarters for the necessary actions.

He said the CCPP had been around for years but was dying due to lack of funds.

According to him, if the PPC had been active, it would have provided an adequate channel through which affected Nigerians would air their grievances about police brutality.

He said the tragedy that befell the country during the #ENDSARS protest would have been avoided if the PPCC was active.

Dingyadi said the federal government “is determined to ensure that such horrific incidents do not happen again.

Public Complaints Commission

“The Public Complaints Commission generally deals with all kinds of complaints against administrative injustices in public institutions.

“The PPCC is created as a specialized agency to deal strictly with complaints against police personnel.”

Ministry of Police Affairs

He said the composition of the committee with the Ministry of Police Affairs as chairman, included the Police Services Commission, the Ministry of Justice, the National Human Rights Commission and the National Intelligence Agency as members.

CLEEN Foundation

Other members of the committee included the CLEEN Foundation, a non-governmental organization, the Nigerian Police, the Police Community Relations Committee and the Department of State Services with the Police Inspection Department providing the secretariat. .

According to him, the primary purpose of the PPCC is to serve as an institution that oversees the activities of police personnel, that is, their interaction with the public.

He said that the public’s habit of filing complaints against police personnel in police stations had not given the desired solutions to aggrieved Nigerians.

The minister urged the committee to work diligently and transparently to give Nigerians confidence that their complaints will be dealt with by a fair, just and equitable system.
