For the second time in two months, President Muhammadu Buhari has been summoned to appear before the House of Representatives over the worsening insecurity crises in the country.

The resolution was sequel to a motion moved by Sen. Ahmed Safana on Thursday, 2nd May 2019 decrying the numerous abductions, attacks and killings being recorded in different parts of the country.

The House had passed a similar resolution giving the President 48 hours to address the insecurity challenges faced by Nigerians at an earlier plenary on April 11. However, that resolution was not honoured.

The National Assembly premises its powers to summon any person on sections 88 and 89 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which gives it wide powers of investigation.
