According to the Special Adviser to the President of the Senate on Security, Major General Saleh Maina (rtd), the review of the security around the complex is part of the periodic plans to ensure better protection of lives and property as well as improve on the existing arrangement.
General Maina said that in carrying out the directive of the Senate President, the heads of all security agencies present in the Complex and other officials whose portfolios have to do with Security have met at different times to devise a common and water-tight plan.
It has been resolved that henceforth, it is compulsory for all legislators, staff and visitors to the National Assembly to wear identity tag, Mania said.

Also, all vehicles to the National Assembly must be parked at the appropriate designated parking lots.
According to the new security arrangement, there shall be proper screening of personnel coming into the National Assembly as well as the scanning of their hand bags and luggages in a polite but firm manner.
There would be training and retraining of security personnel and staff of the National Assembly as well as general maintenance and upgrading of equipment towards ensuring quick responses, communication and mobility in case of any threats in any location within the National Assembly, he said.
