Senate wants security chiefs held accountable

The Senate has recommended that the Security Chiefs are to be held accountable for the failings of security to ensure that the right steps are taken to address the worsening situation in the country.

This is one of the 18 point recommendations as contained in the Report of the Ad-hoc Committee on the Review of Current Security Infrastructure in the Country which is the fallout of the Summit on National Security held in February this year.

It also urged the Presidency to revisit the management of the current security structure to check the problem of inter-agency rivalry.

The Senate says increasing the size of the nation’s security agencies is now imperative.

The Ad-hoc Committee also recommended that political office holders and religious groups avoid actions that could heat up the polity.

In their separate contributions, the lawmakers said anything short of the implementation of the recommendation of the ad-hoc Committee would be a huge disservice to the country.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki stressed the need for prompt implementation of all the recommendations from the Report.

The Senate also advocated applying other means of conflict resolution other than the use of force as the singular response to the threat to national security
