The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has lamented that the high level of insecurity is a threat to the continued existence of the country.

Gbajabiamila also charged the Federal Government take all necessary actions to tackle the security challenges facing the country.

He stated this while declaring open a two-day workshop on promoting effective legislation and oversight of the security sector in Nigeria, organised by the House Committee on National Security and Intelligence in Collaboration with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation in Abuja, Thursday.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker admitted that the country is currently experiencing significant internal security challenges that have disrupted lives of many citizens.

The statement titled, “All Arms of Government Must Work to Address Security Challenges,” Gbajabiamila was quoted to have said that national security is generally understood to be the preserve of the executive arm of government.

He warned against the dire consequences of allowing the security crises to persist in the country, noting that it has led to the loss of lives and property at a scale that cannot easily be quantified.

Gbajabiamila noted that “the realities of the moment require that we be willing to speak honest truths about the things we haven’t gotten right so that we can then focus our energies on making sure that we do better for the future.”
