nassAs the security situation in the country has not improved in the new year, the House of Representatives has urged the Federal Government to immediately open avenues for dialogue with various ethnic militia groups as a means of addressing security challenges.

The House also commiserated with the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, over the last Saturday’s attack on his convoy in Kano and the families of those killed in the attack. The House’s position on the insecurity challenges facing the country was sequel to a motion of urgent public importance moved by Honourable Muhammad Bashir Galadanchi, entitled, “Urgent need for the Federal Government to open avenues for dialogue as a means of addressing security challenges in the country.”

The lawmaker, noted that the incessant attacks, killings and kidnappings that engulfed the country was worrisome and reiterated that the security and welfare of the people, as stipulated in Section 14 (2) (b) of the Constitution, was the primary purpose of governance. He declared that the present approach by the Federal Government to curb insecurity in the nation had not yielded the needed result.

His words: “if the present approach is not reversed and more long-term solutions deployed, the incessant incidents will pose serious threats to the nation’s security, democracy, rights and freedom of the citizens and also destabilize the nation’s fragile stability and unity.”
