In pursuit of position of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, on the powers of the National Assembly to invite the President, Olusegun Bamgbose, a senior lawyer, has disclosed that Aso Rock Villa might have become empty.
The House of Representatives earlier invited President Muhammadu Buhari over the rising insecurity in the country after the genocide of more than 50 farmers in Borno State by Boko Haram insurgency.
After the invitation, the Speaker of house of Representatives Nigeria, Femi Gbajabiamila confirmed that the President Buhari was willing to appear before the NASS, adding that a date had been agreed and will be made public soon.
Malami who in a statement counteracted that the National Assembly has no authority to summon the President to appear before National Assembly to discuss on the rising insecurity, adding that it was “outside constitutional bounds”.
Bamgbose, a chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, described the AGF’s position as ridiculous and balderdash, adding that the Honourable Minister should be reminded that the National Assembly is a mini Nigeria.
“Nigeria invited Buhari to come and give accountability concerning the insecurity in the country and AGF Malami said it’s unconstitutional, isn’t that funny? Bamgbose, a 2023 presidential hopeful, said in a chat with newsmen on Thursday.
“Does that mean that Buhari is not accountable to any organ or institution in Nigeria? It’s becoming very obvious that Buhari has nothing worthwhile to offer Nigerians.
“It’s like Aso Rock is empty. Nigerians are definitely tired of Buhari. His government is fast becoming boring and uninteresting.
