President Muhammadu Buhari is set to honour the invitation issued to him by the House of Representatives over recent security challenges facing the country.
This was revealed in a Statement by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, after a meeting with President Buhari in his office at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Though the date which the president will face the lower house was not revealed but the speaker assured that the President would honour the summon and provide required enlightenment on security developments across the country.
The speaker in a statement said;
“We came here to see the President, he was ever so willing to listen as typical of Mr. President the usual democrat that he is. And what we basically sought was to convey the resolution of the House and to fix a date, which we did not fix out of respect for Mr. President, and his very tight schedule when a date will be convenient, we have agreed on a date he will meet with the House to address the situation.
“We will communicate the date to you, he is a perfect democrat and he will come to the House to address members and it will be in the nearest future.
“He is coming to talk to Nigerians through the House. You know the House as we have it, as it is constituted, all of Nigeria is present in the House, every single constituency in this country is represented in the House. You shouldn’t look at it as Mr. President talking to the House, he is talking to Nigerians through their representatives.”
“I think he is more concerned than me or you, that’s what I can say. You know they say uneasy lies the head that wears the crown, we will leave everything until when he comes to the House, let me not preempt him, but all I can tell you right now is that he is fully committed to the security, the welfare, lives and property of Nigerians.”
Freshrepoters had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari was summoned by the house of representatives over the killing of more than 40 farmers in Borno state on November 28, 2020.
