- Senator Ike Ekweremadu said Nigeria must stop the incessant killings across the country
- The deputy Senate president called on his colleagues to take up actions to stop it
- He advised President Buhari to solicit for support from the international community
Deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, has sent a message to President Muhammadu Buhari, urging him to ask the international community for help if he feels he is overwhemled.
The Cable reports that Ekweremadu spoke on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, April 17.
He also called on his colleagues to take the problems of killings across the country serious as they will soon be out of jobs if there is no one to govern.
Ekweremadu said: “If they kill everybody, there will be no representatives and we will have no job. If it means shutting down the national assembly to go and seek solution with the executive, we can do that. We must have a country before we even talk about elections.”
He said the problems would not linger for long if it happened in developed countries.
“If it were to be in other developed countries, these challenges will not take so long a time before it is addressed. We should not be ashamed to seek for help. We should not be reluctant to come out openly and seek help," the Senate president added.

Meanwhile, following the widespread criticism that followed President Buhari's statement about the influx of trained fighters from Libya posing as herdsmen to the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby in London, presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina blasted some Nigerians for their misinterpretation of the statement.
Adesina who described Nigerians who misinterpreted the statement as intellectually lazy argued that a simple investigation would have shown that the death of Muammar Gaddafi of Libya was responsible for the proliferation of small arms all over Africa.
