Insecurity threatens Nigeria’s foundations – Gbajabiamila
The current security concerns in the country, according to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila, are dangers to the foundations of Nigeria as a nation.
However, the politician stated that the Federal Government of Nigeria has responded to the difficulties by taking essential measures such as recruiting personnel for security agencies and increasing funds for the police and military, among other things.
On Wednesday, as part of his ongoing official visit to the UK, the Speaker gave a paper titled ‘Democracy in Challenging Times: The Role of African Parliaments in Safeguarding and Delivering on the Dividends of Democracy’ at the School of Oriental Studies in London.
He said, “The most pressing of these challenges today is the national security crisis that threatens the foundations of our nationhood and portends great danger for Africa and the world if it persists.
“The government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has responded to the reality of our present challenges by increasing funding provisions for the police and armed forces, accelerating recruitment and training to put more boots on the ground and also acquiring weapons systems designed to give the security agencies an advantage.”
