BEVERLY HILLS, May 02, (THEWILL) – The House of Representatives has summoned President Muhammadu Buhari to appear before it over the insecurity in the country.
The lawmakers summoned the president while deliberating on a motion on insecurity raised by Ahmed Safana from Katsina state.
THEWILL recalls that the summons is less than a month after the lawmakers summoned Buhari over the same issue but was not honoured by the President.
At Thursday’s plenary, the lawmakers lamented the incessant killings being recorded in parts of the country as a result of attacks by bandits among others.
Yusuf Lasun, deputy speaker, said lack of adequate government policies and actions have been part of the major causes of the security challenges.
“Is there any government in the last eight years that have shown us why people are being killed? No government,” he said.
“The major problem is the kind of policy we give out, either at state or local govt level. It took Bill Gates to come and tell us in Nigeria that we’ve neglected health and education.”
The lawmakers subsequently resolved to summon the president to address them on efforts being made to tackle the insecurity in the country.
