JUST IN : Reps To Summon Buhari Over Security Situation In The Country

By  | 

The House of Representatives has passed a resolution to invite President Muhammadu Buhari to brief the house on the true state of the security situation in the country.

The decision to summon President Buhari was taken at Tuesday’s plenary when the House was considering a motion moved by members from Borno State on the recent massacre of 43 rice farmers in the state by Boko Haram insurgents.

No date was announced for the invitation.

The debate was earlier rowdy after the Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila appealed that it would be inappropriate to invite the president to disclose the actions being taken towards handling the security situation in the country. The Speaker described it as counter-productive.

Some members of the House were opposed to the speaker’s position and this turned into a divisive debate.

The House then went into an executive session to resolve the matter.
