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

The resolution was reached 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.

The debate initially got rowdy after the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, appealed that it would be inappropriate and counterproductive to invite the president.

After strong opposition by some members of the House and executive session was held and Representative Ahmed Jaha, who is one of the sponsors moved an amendment to invite the President to brief on the security situation in the country.

His amendment was seconded and unanimously adopted, though no date was set.

Details later…

Hmmm, I forsee a veto here.  Though a serious issue, methinks its inappropriate to drag the President before an Arm of the National Assembly to discuss every issue purpiserdly believed to be a serious issue by evey section of an arm of the Government. The President may delegate someone special to explain the issue. Come to think of it, some more serious issues than this had occurred in the Country, weve not heard the Sitting President was so dragged. We are made to believe the area in dispute was under Military No Go Area. Perhaps if the victims hadn't any ulterior motives, they shouldn't be there ab initio.

The president will ignore the fraudsters and that will be the end of it because the threat of EFCC will scare the corrupt ones among them.
