Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila is currently in a closed door meeting with Nigeria’s security chiefs in Abuja to deliberate on the security situation in the country.
Gbajabiamila says the meeting is to look at possible ways the parliament could intervene for lasting solution.
Mr. Gbajabiamila admits the security agents have recorded some giant strides which are now being eroded as a result of increasing wave of terrorism and other criminal acts.
The Chief of Defence Staff said his absence at last Friday’s meeting was not meant to disparage the parliament.
He says appreciable progress has been made in the last four years and that the armed forces will continue to strategise for an end to terrorism and insurgency, particularly in the North East.
