Fani-Kayode Reacts As President Buhari Fails To Honour Reps Invitation

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari to appear before the House of Representatives.

Recall that the president was supposed to appear before the House while responding to the invitation to him last week to address Nigerians on the growing insecurity in the country.

But on Thursday, he failed to show up despite the earlier willingness displayed.

Reacting to the development, the former Minister expressed that the National Assembly had no constitutional power to summon the President but invite.

He wrote:

“My understanding of the constitution is that the National Assembly has the power to INVITE the President but not to SUMMON him. Regardless of which side of the political divide we are on & no matter how much we may be opposed to the FG we must be fair &balanced in our criticisms.”
