Presidebt Muhammadu Buhari will in no distance address the House of Representatives on the issue of security as requested by the lawmakers through a resolution on Tuesday.
According to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, a date has been agreed on and it will be communicated soon.
He stated this on Wednesday, noting that the president is more concerned than most on the insecurity of the nation and will speak to the Nigerian people through their representatives soon.
“He was ever so ready to listen as is 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. We have agreed on a date and he will meet with the House to address the situation,” Gbajabiamila said.
“I think he is more concerned than me or you that’s all I can say. You know they say uneasy lies the head. We will leave everything till he comes to the House, so let me not pre-empt. The DS is here, the leader is hereto bear me witness. He (Buhari) is fully committed to security, live and property of Nigerians”.
The decision to summon President Buhari was taken at Tuesday’s plenary when the House considered a motion moved by Hon. Satomi Ahmed (APC Borno State) on the recent massacre of over 40 rice farmers in the state by Boko Haram insurgents.
