In the Bill, Shina Peller countered the mandate of NSCDC in such a way that it is now a duplicate of the Nigeria Police Force.
He argued that every single function of the NSCDC is being carried out by Nigeria Police. Retaining them, he claims, is a waste of resources. Adding to the annual budget of NSCDC which almost runs into a Billion Naira.
According to him, the personnel of NSCDC will not lose their jobs, rather they will be absorbed by Nigeria Police Force.
