Nigeria’s security deteriorating but military has done a good job– Lawan
Senate president Ahmad Lawan says the security situation in some parts of the country is deteriorating, but the military has done “a good job” in trying to fix it.
Lawan made the comments after Istifanus Gyang, senator representing Plateau north, drew the attention of the senate to some attacks by bandits in some communities in Plateau.
In a personal explanation to his colleagues on Wednesday, Gyang lamented that the bandits have become so emboldened that they give notices before attacking their targets.
But Lawan blamed the worsening security situation on the lack of resources. Let me remark here that the security agencies should ensure that we maintain security in areas that appear to be flashpoints,” the senate president said.
“I agree with you recently that the security situation in some parts of the country has started to deteriorate.
But I think the military has done a very good job in improving security across the country and we commend them for doing so much with insufficient resources.
“At all times, our focus must be on providing security and improving the welfare of the citizens of Nigeria. I also commend you for bringing this information on what is happening in your senatorial district to the senate.” Thereafter, the senate observed a one-minute silence in honour of all those that were killed in the attacks.
