The Chairman Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, on Friday, expressed confidence that the security challenges in the country are going down.

He said this in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on the sidelines of the turbaning ceremony of an All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairmanship aspirant, Malam Saliu Mustapha, as the Turaki of Ilorin.

Ndume expressed the position despite the bombing of the Abuja-Kaduna rail track on Thursday by insurgents.

The senator maintained that no country in the world is absolutely devoid of insecurity.

“All I can say is that the insecurity in the country is going down, but it is not eliminated. It has not come to the end. And normally, this kind of thing is not one you say that it is all over. It will not be all over,” he said.

Speaking on his investiture, Malam Mustapha promised to be a worthy Turaki and urged young people to draw inspiration and hope from his story.

“While I understand the enormity of the responsibilities that come with the title, I wholeheartedly accept it in the knowledge that the Almighty will guide and protect me to maintain our time honoured and cherished traditions in the same way He had done the previous title holders,” he said.
