Insecurity: Senate Passes Confidence Vote on Service Chiefs


The Senate passed a vote of confidence on the nation’s security chiefs on Tuesday, praising their efforts in tackling insecurity plaguing the country.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio made the announcement shortly after a closed-door meeting with the service chiefs and National Security Adviser in Abuja.

Akpabio said the decision stemmed from the security leaders’ briefing on the progress made against security threats.

The chamber was convinced serious measures were underway by security agencies, leading to arrests of many criminal actors in recent days. The Senate leader said such actions would surely restore safety and security nationwide.

In particular, the Senate was impressed with the apprehension of perpetrators of heinous crimes across the country. However, Akpabio urged sustained synergy among agencies to fully protect lives and property.

On the legislative side, Akpabio added the Senate would increase collaboration with the executive to defeat this menace. He commended the President for his resolute focus on public safety.

While applauding the tireless service of the security chiefs, uniformed personnel and agency heads, including those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep communities safe, the senate urged them to implement all suggestions from the meeting.
