Ahmed Lawan: Level Of Insecurity Frightening by Racoon(m): 12:50pm On Aug 04
Senate President Ahmad Lawan yesterday described the level of insecurity in the country as “frightening.” [/b]Lawan said that in spite of the fact that the Muhammadu Buhari administration had invested so much in security than its predecessors,  the situation was affecting Agriculture, direct foreign investments and crude oil production.

[b]He noted that insecurity which hitherto was common in “ungoverned spaces” in the country had crept into where “the government is quartered’, an apparent reference to the Federal Capital Territory(FCT).


Lawan stated these before a meeting between the leadership of the Senate and security chiefs went into a closed session.

The Senate President said: “ This Senate particularly and indeed the previous sessions of the National Assembly generally, have shown serious commitment and partnership with the Executive arm of government.

“As far as I can remember, there has never been an administration in this country, especially since the Fourth Republic started in 1999, that invested so many resources in the security of this country like this present administration.

”We believe that as a National Assembly, we have always met this Executive at the right position, at the right time, most especially when it concerns investment in the security of life and property in Nigeria.

“We have also, in our individual capacities as committees of the National Assembly and in fact, as a National Assembly, shown concern about the security situation.

”The security of any country cannot be100 percent satisfactory but of course, there is a level at which no country can be comfortable with insecurity.

“Ours has lingered. We had hoped that by this time, the security situation would have been far better and Nigeria would have made more progress not only in the area of security but also in the area of the economy which is tied to the security situation.

”I believe that all security agencies and armed forces have been doing their best but apparently we have to do more to achieve what we desire.

“There are, of course, several arguments whether the resources available to our Armed Forces and our security agencies are enough or not.

”Definitely not enough. I don’t know of any country where there is enough really. But even within the scarcity that we have, this administration and this National Assembly have always prioritised the security of our country.

“This particular session of the interaction between us is to look into where we are today and probably this current position where we are is most frightening because it is like there is nowhere to hide and nowhere to go.

“Insecurity is everywhere. And it is coming to the point of dislocating the security situation where the government is quartered. We will review all strategies and see what more we have to do.

“Our population is largely peasant. Most of our people are in the rural areas and they live their lives by going to farms. In many parts of the country today, that is a Herculean task.

“My belief is that we can do better to secure the rural areas. The so-called ungoverned space. At least for our population who go to farms to earn their living.

“Where our agricultural productivity is drastically going down, that will complicate the security situation because the most ordinary Nigerians care more about what he or she or what the family will eat. And of course, all other things are secondary.

We have problems with our economy to some extent because of insecurity. No foreign direct investment or not as much as we would ordinarily attract to our country.

“The level of oil theft is of industrial scale today and many of the oil companies, especially the oil majors don’t feel the environment is secured enough for them to continue with their business. Our oil will be useless if there is no room for us to export and earn revenue.

The government may find it difficult to provide services if something is not done.

”Our crude is stolen at such a  high scale and that means our revenue is drastically going down.”I hope that our discussions will give us the opportunity to consider other things or other areas or ideas that we didn’t have before.”

Chief of Defence Staff, Gen.Lucky  Irabor, appreciated the  Senate leadership for convening the meeting. He described it as   ”an in-house discussion based on mutual concern.”

Irabor said: “I believe there is always room for rubbing of minds to make contributions to the effect that we have a more secured environment where every Nigerian will have a sense of security.”

To be honest, there's never been a time I've been so scared to be in this country as I am now! Even if you make decent money enough for you and your family or you earn in dollars, the INSECURITY part is one you can't just over look.

More than ever, I want to japa cos the future doesn't look good except PO wins (I don't know if I can trust him completely tho but he looks better).

The insecurities/insurgencies have been on for long in this present adminstration, Lawan didn't speak out then.

But now that the insecurities have crept into their Abuja, they are now ready to speak out and put up impeachment threats because their safety is at stake.

Politicians don't care about you, it's all about themselves. If you like kee urselves on top dia matter.

And now that it is getting to their corridor, they are now shouting. Bunch of useless muntullaas who are parading themselves as senators.

Flashback: How Bola Tinubu spoke highly of Buhari in 2015, named PDP ‘Poverty Development Party

National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu had during the presidential campaign in 2015, referred to President Muhammadu Buhari as the only solution for the security and economic challenges facing Nigeria.

During a mega presidential rally, the former governor of Lagos State recalled how some powerful nations in the world returned to army generals when they were challenged, saying “Major General Buhari would revive Nigeria’s economy”.

He named the current opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP as the “Poverty Development Party saying they had nothing to offer.

His words at the time were; “Every nation has a period of their own challenges, when America was challenged, they turned to one great man, their ex-military general, General Eisenhower. When the French were challenged, they turned to their general, Charles de Gaulle.

“When Britain was challenged, they turned to their general. Today, Nigeria is economically and physically challenged so we turn to General Muhammadu Buhari. He is the right man for the job. If you talk about military experience, he has it abundantly, he has courage, simplicity, he has it abundantly.

“If you talk about great determination, a combination of vision and ability to perform, honesty and integrity, he has it abundantly.

“I laugh when the incapable government, ‘Poverty Development Party’ PDP were talking. They have nothing again to say, they now want to question the qualifications of General Buhari and look for his certificate”.

Following the manifestos in 2015 which projected the APC presidential candidate as a ‘saviour’, Buhari defeated the then incumbent president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan with Nigerians expecting a total change in security and economy.

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to ensure continuity of his regime by voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.

“The forthcoming general elections will provide us with the opportunity to convince the electorate of the need for continuity to enable our party to consolidate on our achievements in the last 7 years,” Mr Buhari said.

The president, according to a statement by his spokesperson Femi Adesina on Friday, disclosed this while receiving a delegation from Nasarawa State.
“The Government and people of Nasarawa State, as usual, have a great role to play in returning our party to governance in the 2023 elections, in order to create a path for greater socio-economic growth and development.

“This is not only important for Nigeria alone but also for the West African Sub-Region,” the president was further quoted as saying.

It's not enough to pass budget and money appropriated for security..

What's the Senate done in their oversight functions to ensure the money released were appropriately used

That's the big question...You released funds to be looted or for the procurement of arms and payment of incentives to security agent

If the billions spent so far have been rightly used ...there should be visible results

Your actions and inactions expected of a senate president worsened the whole situation.

No checks and balance, no oversight on spending. They’re only speaking up because they’re afraid Abuja (their home) will be run over by those terrorists they so much protect.


Make we all suffer the consequences.

SeunDAssLicker:


Which Lagos? Be like una never know what safety means, una own na to open mouth dey call Lagos safe. Lagos is the most unsafe.

Calculate the number of death in Lagos by other southwest states and tell me where the most careless death has been recorded.
Lagos is the most secured state in Nigeria right now , and it's due to the proactive systems put in place .
Even secured than the federal territory while Nigeria is back sliding the state is still carrying the burden of Nigeria and her citizens and making meaningful progress .
All I'm saying is we need the reformer who dropped sentiments and put in the required reforms that placed the state for progress, we all witnessed major reforms and can still testify to his legacy projects in Lagos, we still see them in person. LAWMA was reformed we still see their trucks picking up trash and sweepers diligently cleaning Lagos streets with dignity. LAMATA was established and driving the Bus transportation reform. We see the BRT lane it made news with Rufai this week. LASTMA is caging the traffic madness on Lagos roads, overshadowing the understaffed Federal Police ‘Yellow Fever’ Traffic Officers. We need solid reforms Lagosians are the most stubborn Nigerians and Tinubu was able to put in measures that shaped the state till today and Lagos remains our pride .
Let's not lose this opportunity all this denial of Tinubu's giants strides and reforms is doing disservice to ourselves.
The last meaningful reform we had was during Babaginda tenure .
