Insecurity: Buhari, Senate President, Speaker in closed-door meeting
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), is meeting with the leadership of the National Assembly.
The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, walked into the venue of the meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 3.04pm.
The agenda of the closed-door meeting is not disclosed officially.
However, The PUNCH gathered from credible National Assembly sources that Lawan and Gbajabiamila came to formally hand over last week’s resolutions of both chambers on the state of insecurity in the country to Buhari.
Recall that last week, the House had urged the President to sack the service chiefs.
On its part, the Senate sought the declaration of emergency on insecurity.
“The Senate President and the Speaker are here to present the resolutions to Mr President.
“They also will hear Mr President’s answers to take to their colleagues in the chambers on Tuesday (tomorrow)”, a National Assembly official informed The PUNCH.
