The House of Representatives have passed a resolution to invite President Muhammadu Buhari over the insecurity in the country.
This decision to invite the president was taken at Tuesday’s plenary after a motion was moved on the recent massacre of rice farmers in Borno.
Recall that Boko Haram had on Saturday carried out a gruesome massacre against farmers in Zabarmari and killed at least 110 people.
Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajamiamila initially countered the motion saying that it will be counterproductive to invite the President while he was seeking means to solve the insecurity.
The Speaker’s position was however opposed by other house members.
The House then went into a closed door executive session to resolve the matter.
After the resumption of the debate, Representative Ahmed Jaha moved an amendment to invite the President over the insecurity in the country.
The amendment was adopted by the House.
The House however is yet to choose an invitation date.
