Security crisis not good for Nigeria - Lawan bemoans

Ahmad Lawan Ahmad Lawan

Senate president, Ahmad Lawan, has bemoaned that Nigerians are tired of the growing state of insecurity in the country.

He made his displeasure at the state of the country known at the Maitama Guest House of the Senate President in Abuja on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, where senators visited him on his 63rd birthday.

“A few days ago, reports have it that over 200 people were killed in Zamfara. This is not the kind of story we want to hear as a people and as a government. The situation is not too good as far as the wanton killings by all manners of criminals are concerned.

“I, however, believe that things can be turned around for better within the remaining one and half years left for this present administration, inclusive of the 9th National Assembly,” he said.

He added that in spite of the fact that the Armed Forces and security agencies are putting in the effort to stop the killings, more is expected of them.

“In supporting the security agencies for more potent war against the killers in the land, the National Assembly has appropriated over N1tn for security in the 2022 budget, which will be monitored very well for desired results.

"In achieving this, our relevant committees will ensure that the procurement process is transparent and what and what was projected to be bought or acquired, are bought.

“The security situation in the country is begging for more attention and it shall be given because that is the primary purpose of governance," he stated.
