NASS condoles with Fasoranti over daughter’s death
The leadership of the National Assembly yesterday called on all Nigerians to cooperate in the fight against insecurity in the country.
The Deputy Senate Leader, Senator Ajayi Boroffice stated this in Akure, when he led the National Assembly delegation on a condolence visit to the leader of the Pan Yoruba Socio Political Group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, on the death of his daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunori.
Mrs. Olakunori was killed recently at a spot near Kajola on Ore- Sagamu Expressway on her way to Lagos after visiting her aged father.
The Deputy Senate Leader said the National Assembly, comprising the Senate and the House of Representatives was concerned about what is happening, adding that motion and resolution had been taken on the ugly development.
He therefore said the National Assembly would work hand in hand with the executive to find lasting solution to insecurity in the country.
Something has to be done very urgently. We all have roles to play because we are part of the government. The killings cannot continue. All Nigerians have roles to play.
“We believe that action has to be taken to stop the nefarious activities of these people. We are fighting a war that has no frontiers. We are fighting those we don’t know their location. But, with our conscious efforts we will find solutions to it,” Boroffice said.
In the same vein, Senator Ibikunle Amosun said all National Assembly members were all saddened with what happened and are determined to find a lasting solution to all these anomalies.
Amosun said all hands must be on deck because no meaningful development can happen in an atmosphere of insecurity.
He said the National Assembly was determined to have a round table discussion once again.
Amosun said: “Security is collective responsibility of everybody and we have been talking about state police, community police, getting our people employed, fighting insecurity in the hard way.
“I think all of us must come together to find a lasting solution to all these incidents that have taken our country by the jugular. We need to still give kudos to our security and I am sure they will not rest until we have a secured Nigeria,” he added.
