We Never Apologised To Buhari For Inviting Him To NASS — Reps

The House of Representatives (Reps) has disclaimed media reports that it  apologised to President Muhammadu Buhari or the Presidency for inviting him earlier in the month to brief it on the escalating insecurity situation in the country.

This came in reaction to news making the rounds that Reps apologized for inviting President Buhari.

Reps through a statement by its Spokesman and Chairman, Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Kalu disclaimed it, saying it never apologized to anyone for doing its constitutional duties.

This was contained in a statement, titled “Clarification on Apology to the Presidency” and dated December 28, 2020.

“It has come to the knowledge of the House that few sections of the media reported that the House apologized to the Presidency over the resolution of the House which arose from the motion sponsored by members from Borno State, requesting for the invitation of the President to brief the nation on the state of insecurity in the country.

“The President of the Presidency as the case may be, never sought for an apology from the House of Representatives for carrying out her constitutional responsibility to the Nigerian electorate. Where then did the media get the report that the House as an institution apologized to anyone? Media professionals are advised to uphold the ethics of their profession.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the House never apologized to anyone for exercising her constitutional mandate and the 9th Assembly of the House of Representatives under the leadership of Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila will not do anything to desecrate or destroy the critical institution of democracy – the Legislature. We strongly believe that President Muhammadu Buhari subscribes to this democratic ethos and ideals as well”, Kalu stated.
