Senate Mandate Leadership to Meet Buhari, Service Chiefs Over Recent Boko Haram Killings

The leadership of the Senate was on Thursday, mandated by it’s members to urgently meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and the heads of the nation’s armed forces over the renewed attacks by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno.

The decision of the Senate followed a point of order moved by Senator Abubakar Kyari (Borno North), on the recent killing of 90 people in his constituency on Tuesday.

The Red Chamber also urged the Federal Government to direct the Armed Forces to urgently secure areas around the Lake Chad.

The Red Chamber also urged the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the North East Development Commission (NEDC), to send relief materials to victims of the attacks.

It similarly urged the Federal Government to implement the Senate’s recommendations on the restructuring of the nation’s security architecture to enhance efficiency.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, promised to mobilise his colleagues in the House of Representatives to meet Buhari and the security chiefs.

Lawan insisted that any of the security chiefs who fails to perform up to expectations, even with adequate provisions, should be sacked.
