Lawan Calls for Legislative Interventions to Address Killings
Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has said that legislative interventions must be stepped up by the National Assembly to protect Nigerians against the heightened spate of insecurity in the country.
Lawan made this submission Tuesday when the upper chamber held one-minute silence six times during plenary to honour Nigerians who lost their lives to various forms of insecurity in the country.
According to the Senate President, it is imperative for the National Assembly to step up legislative interventions to reduce the number of deaths caused by criminal activities.
He added that such interventions would be backed by collaborative efforts between the Legislature, Executive and Nigerians to address Nigeria’s security challenges.
