President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, mentioned on Wednesday that the level of insecurity in the country has significantly decreased since President Bola Tinubu assumed office on May 29, 2023.

Akpabio, in his contribution to a debate on a motion regarding the recent killings in Benue State, highlighted that the latest attack was an aberration, with a recorded decrease in the frequency of major killings nationwide.

Senator Emmanuel Udende (APC–Benue North-East) sponsored the motion, emphasizing that the state government's main duty is to use the security vote to protect the security of lives and properties in Benue State.

Akpabio highlighted that the government of Benue is the first line of thought, as mentioned by Senator Udende, but there are no updates from the government of Benue.

He proceeded by mentioning that in the event of 50 people being killed and communities under attack, the state government should collaborate with security forces in the affected area before involving the President (Bola Tinubu).

He then assured that the president is not sitting back and has always been supportive of the Armed Forces. By the time the Senate meets with him in conjunction with the House of Representatives, resolutions benefiting the entire country will be put forward.

To honor those who lost their lives, the Senate, in its resolutions, urged the Service Chiefs, the Inspector-General of Police, and other security agencies to swiftly deploy security personnel to the affected areas.

The Senate has also resolved to gather all resolutions concerning killings nationwide to present to President Tinubu.
