The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari has agreed to address the House of Representatives on the state of insecurity in the country, as requested by the lawmakers.
Gbajabiamila made this known after meeting Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, a date has been agreed on and it will be communicated soon.
He further stated 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.
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.
