A former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, has recommended the establishment of a bipartisan commission to tackle the security challenges in various parts of the country.
Nnamani expressed concerns over the ability of the present police force to tackle the threat, stressing that these challenges required modern training to be effectively nipped in the bud.
Nnamani, who is also seeking to contest the presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made the proposal on Monday in Abuja on national television.
According to the former Senate President who led the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly between 2005 to 2007, the United States adopted a similar approach in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
He explained that the U.S. government at the time set up a bi-partisan commission which he said led to the creation of the Department of Homeland Security.
