Akpabio fears as hoodlums allegedly take over Assembly premises

0 comment 1 minutes read

President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio on Friday, expressed fear that the National Assembly complex has been taken over by miscreants.

Akpabio maintained that the presence of the hoodlums within the NASS complex threatened lawmakers.

The senate president further added that the influx of hoodlums into the complex portends security threats to lawmakers as they roam about, begging while legislative activities are ongoing.

Akpabio made this complaint during a courtesy visit by members of the National Assembly Service Commission, at the NASS complex, in Abuja.

In his remark, the Commission’s Chairman, Ahmed Kadi Amshi highlighted some of the challenges facing NASC.

Responding, Akpabio said the concerns would be addressed soon as huge resources have been earmarked for staff comfort.

Lamenting the level of poor infrastructures, dirtiness and insecurity within the premises, the Senate President stressed that lawmakers have been losing their mobile phones and other items to the hoodlums.

Akpabio said, “we are aware that the entire complex is under renovation. We must also look after the environment. It is not all about the staff, we will like to see a cleaner environment and a secure complex.

“A lot of Senators have lost their telephones because of the influx of people into the complex”.
