Popular human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to honour the invitation of the National Assembly.

Recall that President Buhari was scheduled to appear before and brief lawmakers on the security challenges rocking the country to Thursday.

But during the National Executive Council of the APC on Tuesday, governors prevailed on the president not to appear before the National Assembly.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, also stated that the constitution gives the president exclusive rights over security and cannot be summoned by lawmakers.

He described the invitation to the president as unconstitutional, adding that it was the right of Buhari to engage the National Assembly or not.

Reacting, Femi Falana advised President Buhari to avoid embarrassment and honour the invitation he had earlier accepted.

According to the senior lawyer, the national assembly is constitutionally empowered to summon any government official including the president.
