The President, Muhammadu Buhari will address a joint session of the National Assembly on security issues and efforts being made to tackle them in the country.
This was disclosed in a tweet made by the President’s Social Media Aide, Lauretta Onochie on Monday.
“President @MBuhari will address a joint session of the National Assembly (@nassnigeria) on Thursday, December 10, 2020.”
In a seating held last week Tuesday, the Senators and Federal Lawmakers had urged the President to appear in the Law House concerning the poor state of security in the Nation.
The summon was also a response to the massacre at Zabarmari carried out by Boko Haram terrorist group and the incessant killings in recent times.
The lawmakers also reached a separate resolution urging the President to relieve his service chiefs of their duties.
Speaker of The House, Femi Gbajabiamila led a group of Lawmakers and Members of the Senate to the Presidential Villa in Abuja last Wednesday for a closed door meeting majoring on National security and also to extend the Houses’ invitation.
Post meeting, Gbajabiamila confirmed that the President had accepted the invitation.
“What we basically sought was to convey the resolution of the House and to fix a date which we did not fix out of respect for Mr President and his very tight schedule, what date will be convenient.
“We have agreed on a date and he will meet with the House to address the situation. We have fixed a date but we will communicate with you.”
