The Chairman, Senate Committee on Finance, who is representing Niger East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Sani Musa, has called for  the establishment of State Police, as a panacea to the current insecurity in the country.

Musa, also advocated massive recruitment of into the armed forces as well as adopting new tactics in intelligence gathering to address the  state of insecurity caused by multiple crimes, banditry and spate of kidnappings across the country.

The Senator made the suggestion in a statement yesterday.

He also called on the federal  government  to re-engineer the  nation’s security architecture against  the backdrop  that the present one was not working.

He said all the tiers of government  and Nigerians must recognise the fact that security remains essential for the survival and flourishing of any society.

He said it has become imperative that all hands must be on deck to ensure the protection of individuals, communities, and the entire nation against dangers and attacks.

Musa urged Nigerians to  give President  Bola Tinubu the needed support and encouragement to do the needful in the nation’s quest for renewed hope.

He added that Tinubu  has the vision, the capabilities, the political capacity and institutional coherence to do those things that would rediscover and place Nigeria back on the path of economic growth, security and prosperity.

Musa also emphasised on the challenges and influence of drug abuse as sought the introduction of the effects of drug abuse in the schools curricula.

Musa said: ” The issue of insecurity in Nigeria has become something of grave concern to me and all well-meaning Nigerians, most of whom continue to wonder how the country arrived at such a dastardly situation where no one is safe.

“Worse still, rather than abate, the problem is escalating and now totally out of control.

“I have repeatedly  spoken  and issued  statements  on this very disturbing  issue, especially  as it  affects my state,  Niger, its neighbouring states and other  parts of the country.

“Security is so important that every government in Nigeria spends a substantial part of its money on its provision.

“Therefore we shall leave no stone unturned to give the needed push for the enhancement of security in our land. Every community is only as strong or weak as the state of its security.”
