Nigeria’s Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has tasked the heads of service chiefs to urgently arrest the rising spate of insecurity across the country or risk being dismissed.

Lawan made the call on Sunday at the State House after a meeting President Muhammadu Buhari where they discussed the safety issues in Nigeria.

Addressing members of the press after the discussion with Buhari, Lawan said, “I think we must tell ourselves the truth that the security situation in the country, especially in the northern part of the country, requires that we give much more resources to the security agencies.

“Those who are heading these agencies, especially the service chiefs, must sit up.

“If, after we provide some support, someone is found short of expectations, he should be shown the way out. This is because the lives of Nigerians are so precious and therefore must be more important than any other consideration.

“I believe that today, the most essential thing in government is to address the security challenges.”

“In the Senate, we believe we need to provide more resources for recruitment by the security agencies: Army, Navy, Air Force, Police, immigration, the paramilitary generally.

“We need to have more manpower or personnel and this is not something you get on a platter. Whoever wants to make an omelette will break an egg.”
