The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives, has expressed concern over the security situation in the country, sequel to the attack on the convoy of the Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, by suspected Boko Haram terrorists, stressing that the sad incident has reinforced the urgent need to review the nation’s Security Architecture, Page 36 learnt.
The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, in a statement on Friday, called on the Presidency to implement the recent resolution of both Chambers of the National Assembly, asking President Muhammadu Buhari to sack his Service Chiefs.
Elumelu in the statement, also noted that the attack on Governor Zulum, as well as other dastardly activities of the insurgents in various parts of the country, have further reinforced the urgent need to inject new hands with fresh ideas to handle the nation’s Security Architecture.
His words: “The worsening security situation in the country under the current Service Chiefs, has reached an unbearable state, to the extent that insurgents have the temerity to attack an armed convoy of a State Governor.
“This is more so, with the insistence by Governor Zulum of compromising of the Security system in the area, allegedly creating opening to the attack; a position that validates the call for the immediate reorganising of the nation’s Security Architecture.
“The entire nation is distressed by the incessant mindless killing of our citizens, and pillaging of defenseless communities by insurgents, bandits, and kidnappers, which have brought indescribable agony, anguish, and torment, to innocent Nigerians.
“We the opposition Lawmakers, hereby in the strongest terms, restate the call to President Muhammadu Buhari to honour the resolution of the National Assembly, and immediately remove the Service Chiefs, and bring in new hands to effectively confront the security challenges confronting our nation.”
