The House of Representative has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a State of Emergency on security challenges facing the country.

This is contained in a resolution read by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila at the end a four- hour executive session on Tuesday in Abuja.

Gbajabiamila condemned attacks on security agents and formation across the country, while sympathising with the families of those who lost their loved ones.

He urged Nigeria Police Force to put in place modalities for the recruitment of new personnel into the force, adding that the current number of policemen in the country was inadequate.

Gbajabiamila stressed the need for all hands to be on deck to arrest the security challenges in the country.

He urged the judiciary to accelerate the processes of prosecution of suspects awaiting trial due to banditry, terror and other criminal activities.

The speaker called for the provision of relief materials to communities affected by terrorists attacks in the country.

He urged the President to ensure full financial autonomy for local government councils in the country to guarantee their functionality to serve the local populace.

According to him, the federal government should ensure the protection of national infrastructure and assets in the country.

He mandated all security committees at the house to commence comprehensive audit of all military and paramilitary assets in the country.

He added that all arms and ammunition in the armed forces must be comprehensively audited, while asking the committees to report back to the house within four weeks.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Rep. Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, the majority leader of the House moved for the adoption of the resolution while Rep. Ndidu Elelu, the minority leader seconded it. (NAN)
