MEMBERS of House of Representatives have called for resignation of people saddled with Nigeria’s security.

  The lawmakers made the call following presentation of two motions on matters of urgent public importance during the plenary session of the lower chamber of National Assembly, yesterday, while expressing their anger over rising insecurity in the country.

   Speaking during his contribution to the motions, Usman Bello Kumo (APC, Gombe) called for resignation of Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi and National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno for failing in their duties.

  On his part, co-sponsor of the motion, Benjamin Ben Mzondu (PDP, Benue) said government has failed to protect the people of Benue State.

  Ruling on the two motions, Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Idris Wase who presided regretted that despite clear intelligence that was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari attacks are still being carried out, leading to loss of lives on daily basis.

  It will be recalled that the two motions were moved by Yusuf Gagdi (APC, Plateau) and John Dyegh (PDP, Benue) over the killing of people in various communities in their constituencies by suspected terrorists.
