The House of Representatives has passed a resolution to invite President Muhammadu Buhari, to brief the house on the true state of security in Nigeria.
The decision was taken at Tuesday’s plenary, following a motion moved by members from Borno State on the recent massacre of 43 rice farmers in the state by Boko Haram insurgents.
Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, however, objected to the idea, describing the invitation as counter-productive.
According to him, it is inappropriate to invite the President to disclose the actions being taken towards handling the security situation in the country.
The House then went into an executive session to resolve the matter.
After the executive session which was held behind closed doors, the House resumed and Representative Ahmed Jaha who is one of the sponsors of the motion moved an amendment to invite the President to brief on the security situation in the country.
His amendment was seconded and unanimously adopted.
No date was however announced for the invitation.
