Insecurity: Reps to forward all security resolutions to NSA, Ribadu

The House of Representatives has resolved to forward all security related resolutions to the National Security Adviser (NSA) Nuhu Ribadu for implementation.

The decision followed the adoption of a motion moved by the Minority Leader, Kingsley Chinda and others.

In the last few weeks, lawmakers have been lamenting the worsening level of insecurity in the country, despite the number of security motions moved by the House.

The introduction of security motions have become a daily routine as members from across the country move different motions for government intervention without results.

Moving the motion, Chinda said the country is grappling with insecurity without any result in sight.

“The rising insecurity rate in the country has also had a negative effect on the cost of living, especially the cost of food, as farmers and traders work in fear and thus charge more for their goods and services.

“Unless the House of Representatives matches its resolutions with actions, the faith that the citizens have in the House will wane, and more Nigerians will continue to suffer the negative effects of insecurity in all sectors of the economy,” he stated.

The House mandated the Clerk of the House of Representatives, Yahaya Danzaria, to compile all House Resolutions on security and forward them to the office of the Security Adviser and the Committee on Legislative Compliance for action.
