The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, says the failure of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration to improve security, is because of international politics.
Lawan stated this while speaking to journalists on Sunday, ahead of the first anniversary of the Ninth Senate on Thursday.
According to him, it is hard for Nigeria to purchase required machinery from foreign countries.
“To some extent, we are suffering from international politics. I know that in our efforts to try to buy spare parts for jets, they may write to a certain foreign government and it will take six to nine months while another country will write to the same government and maybe get it in one or two months,” he said.
Lawan also admitted the country needs more resources and personnel for the Armed Forces.
“We need more personnel for the police, Nigerian immigration Service, and almost all the agencies and paramilitary as well,” he said.
The Senate President listed the resources needed to include “equipment, machinery and then training.”
