The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Military, Senator Ali Ndume, has urged the Federal Government to declare a state of security emergency.
Ndume said on Channel Television Politics on Sunday that the government must put the safety of Nigerians first.
The sooner we take this seriously and declare some kind of emergency in the area of safety and welfare of citizens, the better for us, he said on the show. He added, “This is what the government is all about.
“The Constitution is very clear that the objective of government is the safety and welfare of citizens,” he concluded. The sooner the government and people of Nigeria focus on ensuring that our nation is safe and that the welfare of its citizens is taken care of, the better for us.
Nigeria is grappling with a variety of security issues. Security forces are struggling to protect the lives and property of over 180 million Nigerians from banditry in the North-West to terrorism in the North-East, kidnapping for ransom in the South-East to oil bunkering in the South-South, cultural rape in the South-West.
Although some progress has been made in the war against criminal elements, Ndume believes the military can combat instability with higher equipment.
