Earlier, Chairman, House Committee on Interior, Nasir Sani Zangon Daura, said the committee had studied the bill and would work with all stakeholders on what was needed to be done.
Aregbesola explained that the executive was seeking the amendment of the Nigeria Immigration and Prisons Board Act to enable inclusion of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Federal Fire Service.
He said this was to align the functions and structures of the organisations as well as matters of recruitment, promotion, remunerations, discipline and other issues.
