Senate President Ahmad Lawan says the myriad of perennial security challenges bedeviling Nigeria will soon become a thing of the past.

The number three citizen made this known after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja.

Lawan said the government was working towards improving security within the next two months, adding that the government was headed in the right direction in its efforts to address insecurity.

The senate president noted that the need to secure the country cannot be overemphasized as businesses can’t flourish without security.

He reiterated the need for government to protect all areas, whether rural or urban, to ensure that all Nigerians can feel safe

“There is nothing more important today or more topical than the security of Nigeria. We had a very extensive discussion on the security of all parts of Nigeria, and how we should go about improving the situation. We all have roles to play,” Lawan said.

“Nobody would like to see the kind of thing that we experience in various parts of the country in the form of insecurity. We have responsibilities to our people, and we cannot shy away from that.

“We have to get our people secure. We have to secure the environment for them to earn from their means of livelihood. We would like to see our farmers go back to farms before the rains start to come. We have to secure the rural parts of Nigeria, as well as the urban centres, because we need businesses to flourish.

“So, I believe that between now and probably the next two months, there will be a lot of activities to ensure that we secure the environments for people to live very normal lives. We also believe that the government is headed in the right direction.”
