Insecurity: Senate makes fresh Resolutions

Insecurity: Senate makes fresh Resolutions (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Senate, on Tuesday, condemned in very strong terms the attack on Government Science School, Kankara, Katsina State which led to the abduction and disappearance of over 300 students.

Islamic extremist group, Boko Haram, has since claimed responsibility for the attack.

During Tuesday’s plenary, the Senate also rejected a prayer seeking to invite the Minister of Defence, Major-Gen. Bashir Magashi (rtd); Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; the Director-General, Department of State Security Service, Yusuf Magaji Bichi; and the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to brief the Senate on measures being taken to rescue the missing students.

The red chamber, however, maintained its call for President Muhammadu Buhari to consider and implement the recommendations of its Adhoc Committee on Nigeria Security Challenges dated March, 17th 2020 and Senate Resolutions therefrom, as a holistic response to the mounting security challenges across the country.

The committee had recommended the dismissal of the current service chiefs.

The upper legislative chamber further rejected an additional motion by the Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi (APC – Kebbi North); and seconded by Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC – Nasarawa West) for the constitution of an Adhoc Committee comprising of APC and PDP lawmakers, to brainstorm on ways to curb the rising security challenges facing the country.
