Borno Massacre: House Of Reps Invite Buhari Over Insecurity

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari

The House of Representatives has taken a resolution to invite President Muhammadu Buhari for explanation on the escalating security situation in the country.

This is coming on the heels of the killing of over 43 rice farmers in Zarbamari village, Borno State over the weekend.

Recall that the House was earlier divided on the invitation and suddenly went into executive session following rising dissensions among the lawmakers on the subject matter.

Reconvening after an hour from the closed-door meeting on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, Ahmadu Jaha from Borno State who earlier insisted on the invitation as the key prayer of the motion collectively agreed on by the lawmakers and presented by Hon. Ahmed Satomi on their behalf was asked to formally move the motion for the president’s appearance

Successfully seconded by another lawmaker, the motion was subjected to a voice vote. It then received overwhelming support of the House, validating the invitation.

The House was however silent on the time of the president’s appearance.
