The Senate has said that it will question the Service Chiefs about the nation’s vulnerability on Thursday and today.
Senator Tokunbo Abiru revealed this on Tuesday when he announced that the Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance, and Other Financial Institutions will not be meeting on Tuesday but rather on Friday this week instead.
Abiru informed reporters that the Senate had chosen to reschedule the CBN governor’s presentation for Friday in order to accommodate the Service Chiefs’ scheduled appearance.
“The Senate has fixed the two days for critical and constructive engagement with the Service Chiefs,” he stated. “We would have fixed Wednesday or Thursday this week as a new day for the interface.”
Kidnapping and Killings of citizens for ransom have been on the rise in recent months, causing panic in Nigeria.
The Senate had resolved last Tuesday to summon the Service Chiefs to offer explanations on what they were doing about the alarming insecurity in the country.
