The House of Representatives has lamented the security situation in Nigeria.
Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, House spokesperson, Benjamin Kalu said the security situation in the country is ‘alarming.’
Kalu stated the position of the House today while briefing journalists in the National Assembly after the lawmakers adjourned plenary to honour one of their deceased colleagues, Mohammed Fagen-Gawo.
Amidst the insecurity, the presidency has said Nigerians have reasons to be grateful as the security situation is better than it was before President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office.
Kalu also added that the 9th Assembly is going to look at various legislative interventions with regards to insecurity in the country to ensure Nigerians are safe because it is a core mandate of every government to protect lives and property.
He said the lawmakers will also assist the police to be more effective.
