Reps to summon Buhari over security situation

Share

The leadership of Nigerian House of Representatives on Wednesday resolved to summon President Muhammadu Buhari, of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to appear before it and explain mounting insecurity crises in the country, especially wanton killings in North Central Nigeria.

The decision to summon Buhari came following a motion moved by an APC Rep member from Kano State, Mr. Bashir Baballe, which was passed in a unanimous voice vote.

The House also suspended legislative sittings for three days in solidarity with victims of the killings in the country.
