Lawan, Gbajabiamila to meet Buhari over insecurity

The Senate on Thursday, mandated the leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly to urgently hold a meeting with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, (retd.), the nation’s security chiefs.

The decision was taken following a point of order raised by the representative of Borno North Senatorial District, Senator Abubakar Kyari, on the massacre of 90 people in his area on Tuesday.

The Senate also urged the Federal Government to direct the army and other agencies to ensure safety around the Lake Chad shores.

The President of the President, Ahmad Lawan, promised to mobilise his colleagues in the House of Representatives to meet Buhari and the security chiefs.

He said Boko Haram insurgency has become a huge industry with its membership cutting across religious and tribes within and outside the country.

He therefore charged the relevant military and security agencies to rise up to the challenge and contain it.

The President of the Senate said, “What we will do, in addition to meeting Mr. President, it is not going to be the Senate President, I’ll make sure that I have my colleague in the House of Representatives because this is a national question.”
