SECURITY BRIEFING: WE’LL HOLD BUHARI TO HIS PROMISE – REPS

Written by on December 11, 2020

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SAYS IT WOULD HOLD PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI TO HIS WORDS TO THE ITS SPEAKER, FEMI GBAJABIAMILA, THAT HE WOULD HONOUR THE INVITATION TO THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY TO SPEAK ON THE WORSENING LEVEL OF INSECURITY IN THE COUNTRY.

THE CHAIRMAN, HOUSE COMMITTEE ON MEDIA AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS, BENJAMIN KALU, WHO MADE THIS REMARK WHILE ADDRESSING NEWSMEN AFTER PLENARY, SAID BUHARI HAD YET TO COMMUNICATE TO THE HOUSE WHY HE (PRESIDENT) SHUNNED THE INVITATION BY THE LEGISLATURE.

KALU ALSO STATED THAT BUHARI WAS INVITED AND NOT SUMMONED, STRESSING THAT HE WAS TO ENGAGE THE LAWMAKERS IN A DIALOGUE AND WAS NOT COMPELLED TO APPEAR BEFORE THEM.

THE LAWMAKER ARGUED THAT SINCE BUHARI HAD YET TO COMMUNICATE THAT HE WOULD NO LONGER BE COMING TO THE HOUSE, IT WOULD BE WRONG FOR THE LAWMAKERS TO ASSUME THAT HE WOULD NOT HONOUR THE INVITATION.
