Senate has, today, requested the President of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, to address the joint session of the Senate
and House of Representatives on the matter of security.
President, Senator Bukola Saraki, on behalf of all members of the senate asked
Senator Akume from Benue State to accept his condolences on what has just
happened in the state.
said ”It is clear that if we do not do something it will take a coloration that
might create further crisis in this country. That is why there is need for Mr.
President to come and address the two chambers.
”I will meet
with the Speaker to look at that as soon as possible. We hope that with that
opportunity we will also be able to better advise if there is need for State of
Emergency to be declared in those states and secondly why the leaderships of
those security agencies do not require changes in order to restore confidence in
the institution. But clearly, something needs to be done, and we will make sure
something is done.”
also implore the Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Security infrastructure summit to
expedite actions on the summit resolution they made and bring it forward to the
senate for consideration.
