Insecurity Challenge: Despite N900bn, Military Has Not Done Well – Senator Bassey

Gershom Bassey, the Senator representing Cross River Southern Senatorial District has lamented the state of insecurity in the country. DAILY POST reports.

In an interview, he revealed that the Senate approved a supplementary budget request of N900 billion for the military for the defence of the country but it was painful that despite such a staggering sum there has not been commensurate performance to stem the heightened insecurity in the country.

“One of the things we had recommended at the time was the change of security chiefs which was done to a large extent, but it wasn’t changed for the sake of change.

“It was changed to achieve some level of performance and the bottom line is that we have not seen that performance. We don’t know what the problem is. It’s for the executive that will know better. jamb results

“They came back with a supplementary budget of about N900 billion for security and we passed it. We gave them the N800 or N900 billion they asked for. We gave them that money proud that we are giving money for security issues.”

He maintained that at any time the Senate and the National Assembly as a whole is always very serious about it.

But he insisted, “The bottom line is that security is not improving. We are not talking about money spent. All we are insisting on is, let security improve within the time frame of six weeks which we have given to the president otherwise our resolve to impeach him is on course..”

Bassey maintained that the six weeks are just the last stroke.

He emphasised that the Senate had always given the military budgetary support since 2018.

“So it’s not as if it’s just happening in the last 6 weeks. We have been talking about it and passing resolutions. We have been giving them money.”
