The Nigerian Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a national security emergency.
This was part of resolutions reached during plenary on Wednesday, January 29.
During the session, the Upper House deliberated extensively on Nigerian security challenges with some lawmakers looking considering a restructuring of the current security architecture.
While considering the matter, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe said the hard work that was supposed to be done in Nigeria is not done.
Senator Abaribe asked the present government to resign, arguing that the government can no longer do anything in the country.
Still speaking on the security issues, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was of the opinion that the security architecture is overstretched and not as effective as it is.
According to Senator Omo-Agege, there is a consensus that the nation should be looking into the direction of community policing but there remains the uncertainty of what the structure and component will be like.
