Within two months, the country will be safe again – Lawan

Senate President Ahmad Lawan has assured Nigerians that in two months time, there would be an improvement in the security of the country.

He said this on Monday while speaking to newsmen after his visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

Lawan said the government will need to protect all parts of the country to ensure Nigerians feel safe again.

“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.

“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,” he said.
