Senate President Ahmad Lawan yesterday described the level of insecurity in the country as “frightening.” Lawan said that in spite of the fact that the Muhammadu Buhari administration had invested so much in security than its predecessors, the situation was affecting Agriculture, direct foreign investments and crude oil production.
He noted that insecurity which hitherto was common in “ungoverned spaces” in the country had crept into w. “the government is quartered’, an apparent reference to the Federal Capital Territory(FCT).
Lawan stated these before a meeting between the leadership of the Senate and security chiefs went into a closed session.
The Senate President said: “ This Senate particularly and indeed the previous sessions of the National Assembly generally, have shown serious commitment and partnership with the Executive arm of government.
“As far as I can remember, t. has never been an administration in this country, especially since the Fourth Republic started in 1999, that invested so many re.s in the security of this country like this present administration.
”We believe that as a National Assembly, we have always met this Executive at the right position, at the right time, most especially when it concerns investment in the security of life and property in Nigeria.
“We have also, in our individual capacities as committees of the National Assembly and in fact, as a National Assembly, shown concern about the security situation.
