Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that President Buhari will respond acccordingly to the summons he received from the Hosue of Representatives yesterday April 25th.

The House had resolved to summon President Buhari to inquire from him what is being done to stem the tide of herdsmen attacks in the country.

The house came up with the resolution while debating the continued killings in Benue, particularly Tuesday’s attack on a Catholic church and the murder of worshippers and two priests.

Speaking in an interview with Channels TV, Adesina said the House had not communicated the summon to President Buhari.

“It is a development that just happened and almost throughout the day we have been in the Federal Executive Council meeting.

That meeting did not rise until after 5:00 p.m. So, it was after 5:00 p.m. when I got back to my office that I saw that news scrolling on the television.

That means that the President himself hadn’t heard of it at that time. So, when the lawmakers, the Houses of Representatives, communicate their decision to the President, it would be handled appropriately.”

While acknowledging that the house can summon the presidnet, Adesina however did not say whether the President would honour tthe summon when communicated to him.

“It is democracy in action. The House has the right to ask anybody to appear and the President is holding the position as a trust for Nigerians.

It is the mandate of Nigerians that he is holding. But when they communicate that decision to him, he will respond accordingly. I can’t be talking of what he will do until that decision is communicated to him,” he said.
