President Muhammadu Buhari will address a joint session of the National Assembly to brief the members on efforts being made by his administration to address the precarious security challenges being witnessed across the country. The usual presidential address to the parliament is slated for Thursday.
President Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Ms. Lauretta Onochie, made the announcement of his scheduled appearance on her official Twitter handle, on Monday.
Barely a week ago, the House of Representatives had made a resolution on last Tuesday, to invite the President to address its plenary session, where he’s expected to explain the measures being taken to contain the rising spate of insecurity in the country.
The decision was reached based on a motion of urgent national importance moved by the Borno State caucus, related to the latest killing of 48 farmers in the state.
It could be recalled that, the Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, had last Wednesday told the press that the President has agreed to address Nigerians, through the federal lawmakers, on the security challenges confronting the nation.
