Senate President Ahmad Lawan says the country’s security has deteriorated, stressing that the continuous loss of lives is unacceptable.
Lawan, while speaking on Tuesday in a welcome address on the floor of the senate, said there is a need for the senate “to speedily seek for solutions to fix the security problem bedevilling our dear country”.
“Recently, the security in the country has deteriorated and the attendant loss of lives is not acceptable. We need to secure the lives and property of our citizens, as enshrined in our constitution,” Lawan said.
“We all are witnesses to how our economy is also affected by the inclement security situation.”
“In this regard, the Senate will engage the executive arm of government to discuss the implementation of the recently launched National Security Strategy (NSS) 2019,” he said.
“For a long time, major stakeholders in the security of our nation and police authorities appear to achieve consensus on the necessity of introduction of community policing in the country.”
