Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari was unable to attend a planery meeting on Thursday morning, disrespecting the invitation of the House of Representatives.
According to reports, on December 1, the House of Representatives issued a resolution calling on Buhari to address the real security situation in the country after Boko Haram killed 78 rice farmers.
The invitation was passed on to the President by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila and other leaders. Buhari agreed to address the Chamber during the meeting.
A few days later, Laureta Onochie the Personal Assistant to the President on Social Media, made an announcement on December 7 that the President would address a joint session of the National Assembly today. But President Buhari was out of sight during Thursday’s plenary session.
Rivers State spokesman Solomon Bob has issued an order banning the president from the show. He asked Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila to update the palace. In response, Gbajabiamila said the chamber would wait for an official announcement from the president.
The President’s refusal to show up may have been because of the advisory by Justice Minister and Attorney General Abubakar Malami.
He released a statement on Wednesday saying that the National Assembly had no right to invite Buhari. His comment was categorically refuted by several senior lawyers.
