President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has urged the Federal Government to prioritise the safety of Nigerians.
He said the National Assembly would continue to engage the Executive arm of government until appropriate action is taken to address the growing insecurity in parts of the country.
Lawan stated this in his concluding remark on a motion considered during plenary on Tuesday into the recent kidnapping of students at the Government Science School, Kankara, Katsina State.
This was contained in a press statement by Special Assistant (Press) to President of the Senate, Ezrel Tabiowo, titled ‘Insecurity: N’Assembly will continue to engage Executive until… – Senate President’ on Tuesday.
The statement quoted the Senate President as saying, “There’s nothing more important for the government to do than securing the lives of citizens of this country and at all times.
“As a parliament, we should never get tired of talking about issues that affect our people. We have our own limitations because of the structure of how governance must be carried out, but we must never get tired of reporting what is happening to our people.
