Senate President Ahmad Lawan has said that the federal government should unleash ‘total federal might’ to crush insurgency in the country.
Lawan said this on Friday May 20 during a meeting with All Progressives Congress (APC) delegates in Cross River state, on his presidential ambition.
He stated that the APC government which came into power in 2015, has been able to recover the 16 local government areas captured by Boko Haram insurgents in Borno and Yobe states.
“The insecurity issue in the country deserves total attention. The federal government should unleash all the federal might to quell insurgency, banditry and even the militancy in the Niger Delta.
“In the 9th Assembly, we have given utmost attention to all military and security requests, signifying the importance we attach to security.”
