Reps Summon Buhari, Give Him 48-Hours Ultimatum
President Muhammadu Buhari is to appear before the house of representatives to answer for the incessant killings in some parts of the country.
Naija News reports that the house has asked the President to appear before it and address Nigerians on the recent killings in the country.
The house gave the President a 48-hour ultimatum to make the appearance and address Nigerians.
The lower chamber that summoned the President during its sitting on Thursday, April 11, accused the President of failing in his responsibility of securing lives and properties in the country.
This is coming after the adoption of a motion by Mark Gbillah from Benue state, on what has been described as the “the resurgence of killings across the country by alleged bandits and herdsmen.”
Recall that some states including Zamfara and Kaduna have been under series of attacks by suspected bandits, and leading to the loss of many lives.
The lawmakers expressed disappointment over the response of the armed forces to the killings under the present administration and asked the President to tell Nigerians the tactics he intends to deploy as the commander-in-chief of the Nigerian Armed forces in addressing the killings.
The lawmakers also asked him to provide “evidence of the complicity of traditional rulers, political detractors and recently foreign miners in the perpetration of incessant killings of Nigerians across the country as is constantly being postulated by this administration.”
