The senate and indeed the National Assembly is positively disposed to receiving even supplementary budget purposely to address the needs of the security agencies so that we are able to empower them to fight Boko Haram, banditry and other security challenges across the country.
And If after we provide some support and someone is found short of expectations, he should be shown the way out if he refuses to go. Because the lives of Nigerians are so precious and therefore must be more important than any other considerations or sentiments.
Those who are heading these security agencies especially the service chiefs, must sit up, in fact we must have milestones and timelines on how we are going to deal with this and if they can’t, they should be shown the way out.
We have no luxury of any option other than to address the security challenges more than any other thing and we We can’t just go on without any time frame for dealing with these issues.
