This was part of its resolutions following its adoption of a motion on the “General In security in Nigeria” sponsored by Sen. Ajayi Boroffice (APC Ondo) and co-sponsored by 106 other senators.
President of the Senate Ahmad Lawan in his remark said the National Assembly would continue to talk about the security situation in the country, adding that there was a need to deploy more resources to fight insecurity.
Lawan also said the state governors and local governments’ authorities should be fully involved in the fight against insecurity to complement the effort of the Federal Government.
He, however, urged the Federal Government to further equip security agencies to adequately combat insecurity in the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the adoption came weeks after President Muhammadu Buhari had nominated new Service Chiefs to spearhead a new drive to curb all forms of insecurity and brigandage in different parts of the country.
