18 January 2016, 07:01

Abuja - Senate President Bukola Saraki has ordered that National Assembly security be reviewed in order to keep the institution up-to-speed with challenges facing the country, Punch reports.

According to a statement released on Sunday, Major General Saleh Maina, Special Adviser to the Senate President on Security, explained that the boost was part of periodic plans to ensure protection of lives and property on the precinct.

Maina revealed that all officials dealing with security had met at various times to devise a plan that would work across the board.

As part of the revised security measures, no loitering will be allowed in or around the precinct by visitors or workers.
