Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has disclosed that President Buhari has agreed to address the House of Representatives on the state of insecurity in the country as requested by the lawmakers.
Recall that the decision to summon President Buhari was taken at Tuesday’s plenary when the House considered a motion moved by members from Borno State on the recent massacre of 43 rice farmers in the state by Boko Haram insurgents.
Gbajabiamila who disclosed that they have reached a date, stated that the President is concerned about the state of insecurity in the country.
“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.
“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”.
