Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has expressed that the security challenges affecting the country will soon be over.
According to his media aide, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo stated this while receiving the Oluyin of Iyin-Ekiti on Thursday in Abuja.
“The president has recently constituted a committee that will look at the whole security infrastructure with a view to looking at the needs of the military as well as the police and security agencies,” the statement reads.
“The result of that is a bill before the National Assembly, a supplementary bill.
“The purpose of that bill is to present some of the needs of the military, as well as of security agencies in order to be able to beef up our response to the security challenges.
“We have to keep looking at how to support our security services to ensure that our country is safe.
“I can assure you that soon, the issue of insecurity will be a thing of the past, and that we will all live in peace and prosperity in this country.
“There is no question at all that at the level of community we need to take decisive action, because most of these things occur in our community level.
“And I’m very happy to hear that you have a committee organised for the purpose of tackling insecurity and that you’ve been able to contain the menace that we see in different parts of the country in your community.”
