The senator representing Plateau North, Senator Istifanus Gyang, has called on President Muhammad Buhari to rise to his responsibility as the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces and bring the challenge of insecurity under control.
Failure to take the bold step, Senator Gyang said, would allow those who want to overrun the country to succeed in their mission.
The lawmaker made the call in Abuja while receiving the management staff of Federal College of Veterinary and Medical Laboratory Technology, Vom, Jos, Plateau State who came to honour him for his community development strides.
Gyang said legislators at both chambers of the National Assembly were already bringing the issue of security to the front burner and attention of the president all the time, adding that the decisive action of the president would help arrest the situation.
“One of the places that was having this challenge earlier was Plateau State and my constituency in particular. When it started in our own area, some people felt that it was the communities that were the problem. They thought it was the host communities that were generating insecurity, not being hospitable and all sorts of sentiments were attached to it at the early stage.
