Buhari to submit supplementary budget to boost Security — Lawan
President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari would later this month submit a supplementary budget to the National Assembly to request for more funds to tackle insecurity across parts of the country.

The President of the Senate who has also raised the alarm that some elites are planning to divide the country, said that those behind the minority agitations were disgruntled elites bent on satisfying their self-serving interest to the detriment of majority of Nigerians.

Lawan who underscored the importance of unity in national development, said those clamoring for the break-up of the country were in the vast minority. ”He stated that the unity of Nigeria would continue to be the cardinal focus of the National Assembly by ensuring equity, justice and fairness for every part of the country.

Lawan who made the disclosure while speaking to journalists in his home town Gashua, said that the National Assembly would stop at nothing to ensure that normalcy and security is restored to states faced by challenges such as kidnapping, insurgency, banditry and militancy.

According to the President of the Senate in a statement by his Special Assistant, Press, Ezrel Tabiowo, the President of the Senate said: “About the issue of security, I think the National Assembly has done quite a lot in that area working with the Executive arm of government and, recently, on Monday or so, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and I met with Mr President, and the centre of our discussion was the security of the country.
