The Nigeria government is in a hurry to end the worsening insecurity in the country, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has said.

Lawan said the appointment of new service chiefs is part of measures the government has in place to ensure the introduction of new ideas and strategies to salvage the security situation of the country.
The Senate President said the current sense of urgency is with a view to avoiding having the situation affect the country’s food supply, with the rainy season fast approaching and farmers looking forward to returning to their farms.
