The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has inaugurated an ad-hoc committee of the Senate to look into the current security architecture of the country. At the inauguration ceremony held on Tuesday in Abuja, Senator Lawan asked the 18-member committee to recommend ways to improve the nation’s present security situation.
This comes one week after the Senate had exhaustive deliberations on the security situation in the country and resolved to set up a committee on ‘Nigerian Security Challenges: Urgent Need To Restructure, Review and Reorganise the Current Security Architecture.’
In his remarks, the Senate President asked the committee members to be rigorous in their assignment in order to “deepen the understanding of the nature of the security crisis.”
He urged them to have a realistic assessment of the problem and proffer workable solution, stressing that the Constitution guarantees protection of the life and property of every Nigerian and the government’s commitment to upholding same.
