Dignified speaker of the Nigeria House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, highlights the public on the collegiate action to combat insecurity.
The Nigerian legal system is, by far, one of the most unique in the African globe. This is owing to the fact that the principles are plain, duly outlined in the constitution. Although the constitution is a book of law, it also doubles as source of Nigerian law. Therefore, it is constitutional for the government to make provisions for law and order. In Nigeria like other part of the world, the legislative body make laws and formulate policies. Therefore, they address and try to ultimately attend to emergencies as they unfold. For instance, cases of insecurity, at times, first pass the test of legislative deliberation before an executive order is given. Meanwhile, it is not always so in all situation.
Femi Gbajabiamila, in a recent symposium with other lawmakers, said:
” …… So, it is about time we take necessary steps to combat insecurity in Nigeria. Most importantly, the North needs to be a priority. Frequent killings and insurgent attacks on these states are alarming. Kaduna kidnap makes no real sense. Certainly, we need to play our cards well and fight insecurity without delay……….”
Gbajabiamila is the serving speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives. On 12th day of June 2019, he was elected.
