The Senate has resolved to hold yet another national security summit to address the worsening situation of insecurity in the country.
This resolution follows a point of order raised on the floor of the Senate by Senator Akinyelure Ayo at Tuesday’s plenary.
This development also comes after the recent killing of Funke Olakunrin who was murdered by unknown gunmen last Friday.
A cross section of senators who contributed to the motion complained about the worsening security situation in the country and are demanding urgent attention from security agencies.
The curtain may have been drawn on the two-day national security summit organised by the senate in collaboration with the executive arm of government, it will for a very long time remain a watershed in the battle to save the country from the stranglehold of insecurity.
The tactical fact-finding summit ended in Abuja on Monday.
It was a strategic session convoked as a matter of urgent national importance to rescue the country from mounting security challenges that are threatening the peace of the land.
The summit was also scuttled by ego, but at the end of the day, common sense prevailed and senators brushed aside every unnecessary squabble over the choice of venue, which unknown to many, was a serious issue.
Some of the senators kicked and shoved and others vowed and swore to boycott the summit should it be held in the Villa as suggested by those tagged: “Villa Senators”.
Opinions were sharply divided as the upper chamber grappled and toyed with the issue of venue.
