President Muhammadu Buhari was on Monday 7 of December confirmed his readiness to honour the invitation of the National Assembly on Thursday, December 10, 2020.
This was disclosed by the Personal Assistant to the President on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, via her verified Twitter handle, @Laurestar.
The President is expected to brief the lawmakers on efforts by his government to address the sundry security challenges facing the country.
“President @MBuhari will address a joint session of the National Assembly (@nassnigeria) on Thursday, December 10, 2020,” the tweet read.
We could recall that the House of Representatives had last week Tuesday invited the President to appear on the floor of the Nigerian parliament to offer explanation on the rising spate of insecurity in the country.
This followed a motion of urgent national importance brought by the Borno State caucus over last weekend’s killing of farmers while working in the farmland in the state.
We could also recall that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, was a guest at the villa last week to inform the President about the invitation by the lawmakers over incessant insecurity across the country.
