Godswill Akpabio, the President of the Senate, has expressed worry over the growing number of ‘hoodlums’ infiltrating the National Assembly complex, leading to concerns about security and theft of senators’ phones.
During a courtesy National Assembly Service Commission visit, Akpabio stressed the need for a cleaner and safer environment to protect lawmakers and staff.
In response to challenges faced by the Commission, Akpabio acknowledged the importance of staff welfare and highlighted the complex’s infrastructural decay and untidiness.
