Lawan Laments Observance of Minute Silence Six Times In One Day

The President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmed Lawan, on Tuesday decried the rising state of insecurity in the country, lamenting that the Senate had to observe one minute silence six times in one day for those who were murdered or killed by criminals.

Lawan also said the National Assembly must step up legislative interventions to protect Nigerians against the heightening spate of insecurity in the country.

The Special Assistant {Press}, to the Senate President, Ezrel Tabiowo, quoted Lawan in a statement as saying that this is needed to reduce the number of deaths caused by criminal activities.

According to Lawan, the interventions will be backed by collaborative efforts between the Legislature, Executive and Nigerians to address Nigeria’s security challenges.

He said: “Let me observe that we have observed about six one-minute silences and most of it was to pray for the repose of the souls of Nigerians who were murdered or killed by criminals.

“It is very important that we step up our legislative intervention in ensuring that we protect the lives and properties of Nigerians to reduce the incidence of one-minute silence.

“I believe that the Senate and, indeed, the National Assembly, working together with the Executive and getting the support of Nigerians, we can bring the much-needed succour to our people, and that is why we are here.”
