Senate President Ahmed Lawan says the Muhammadu Buhari government is working towards improving security within the next two months.
Speaking after visiting President Buhari on Monday, Lawan said he believes the government is headed in the right direction in its efforts to address insecurity.
The senate president added that the government needs 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,” Lawan said.
“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.
“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,” Lawan said.
