Abu Ibrahim, lawmaker representing Katsina south senatorial district, has described the invasion of the national assembly as a blessing in disguise.

Addressing state house correspondents on Friday, the senator said it has provided an opportunity for lawmakers to reassess security.

Ibrahim alleged that Nigeria’s national assembly is the most insecure in the world.

“Everywhere I have gone around the world, every national assembly has good security. You cannot just go in, you cannot just access officers but the case is different here,” he said.

“If you go to our offices in the national assembly here, like in my office yesterday, there were over sixty people waiting who I did not have appointment with. So, this has influenced us to sit down and critically examine the security at the national assembly itself.

“Secondly, we sat in an executive session as senators and asked ourselves pertinent questions of what happened and why. We actually told ourselves the truth and even pointed culprits in what led to this. We came out with the promise that everyone of us will support and abide by the provisions of the constitution, our rules in the national assembly … this is therefore the benefit of the crisis which happened two days ago, if I can call it so.

“So, I still assure Nigerians that the national assembly has come out of this crisis better, much more united and much more focused.”
