Worried about the level of insecurity in the country, Northern Senators have expressed deep concerns over the growing security challenges affecting the peace and survival of people in the region and other parts of the country.

Speaking after a meeting held by the Senators over the disturbing situation, the Chairman of the Forum, Senator Aliyu Wamakko said: “We discussed what best needs to be done and how.

“This country needs to be as secure as possible that every Nigerian can move freely, wherever he or she wants.”

The former Governor of Sokoto State who represents Sokoto North Senatorial District, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Bashir Rabe Mani pointed out that Northern Senators were worried as all the geo-political zones have one problem or the other bordering on security.

“We have to own the solutions as nobody can do it for us,” he added.

The Forum further reiterated its commitment to diligently represent their constituents.

He said: “As the people who are here to represent our people, we have the duty to do more to find plausible solutions to these challenges.

“I know we are using the security outfits very well, but there are also other ways we will discuss to see how best we can find solutions to the problem.”
