The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, yesterday took a holistic overview of the current centralised security architecture in Nigeria and described it as a failed system that must be overhauled in all its ramifications.
According to the Senate President, “if we must get it right in the country, it has become imperative to restructure the security architecture.”
Aligning with the Senate President, Lagos lawmaker representing Amuwo-Odofin II and Chairman, House Committee on Legislative Compliance, Mr Rauf Olawale, said there was need for restructuring. Meanwhile, the Federal Government has explained its decision to pay close attention to the issue of community policing, saying the system is one sure way of tackling security challenges as it incorporates all segments of the society into its operations.
Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, stated this when he received in audience the re-elected member of the House of Representatives from Kano State, Alhassan Doguwa.
