The two-day Dialogue which was declared opened by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, last Thursday, was convened to enable the legislature and the executive put heads together, share ideas and map out strategies on how to combat the increasing threats to the peace and security of the country.
Osinbajo had, in his presentation on the first day of the summit, declared that establishment of state-controlled Police and other forms of community-policing were clearly the way out of the security crisis.
