President Muhammadu Buhari has been ordered to declare a state of emergency on security with immediate effect and this is coming from the senators.

The Senate has voiced their grievances towards the insecurity erupting in the North the most recent is in Niger State where a very large number of schoolboys and teachers were kidnapped at the Government Science Secondary School in Kagara, Niger State.

Senator Sabi Abdullahi, also from Niger State, said the kidnappers and bandits were emboldened by the successes being recorded in the state in recent time as about 100 people had so far been kidnapped in the state.

Senate President, Senator Lawan has described the kidnap as a bad omen to the Nigerian government.

The senators alleged the government of neglecting its role to safeguard the security of the citizens.

He said, “We need to amend the constitution so that governors should be chief security officers of their states since the government at the centre had failed to protect the lives and properties of Nigerians.

“The Federal Government is busy giving palliative instead of creating employment, thus aggravating insecurity.

He said, “Abduction of students from school happens in the northern part of Nigeria.

“With incidences like this, parents would be scared to take their wards to school, and the efforts of the past and by present leaders at providing education would be defeated.

“Service chiefs have to secure the schools and have to carry the states along.”
