How gaps in 1999 Constitution worsens insecurity in Nigeria – Senate President, Lawan

 

President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Thursday, revealed that certain gaps in the 1999 Constitution formed by the exclusion of traditional institutions in the governance and security architecture of Nigeria remains mostly responsible for the deteriorating security situation in the country.

Lawan explained that the worsening activities of insurgents, criminals and bandits have placed the country in dire circumstances that need an urgent review of the 1999 Constitution along the lines of reorganizing the structure of governance to provide specific roles to traditional rulers in different communities across the country.

The Senate President disclosed this in Abuja when giving a speech to declare open a meeting between the National Council of Traditional Rulers and the Senator Ovie Omo-Agege-led Constitution Review Committee.
