The House Of Representatives member representing Bende Federal Constituency and, spokesperson for the House Hon. Benjamin Benjamin Kalu, said the invitation extended to President Muhammadu Buhari was not aimed at ridiculing him over security matters.
Kalu said this while speaking with newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, that the President was rather invited for engagement with the house on ways to address security challenges in the country.
He said that the idea of the invitation was to have a feedback mechanism on the security situation in the country, adding that the partnership established by the 9th assembly with the executive would be sustained.
He, however, said that since Nigeria was operating a democracy hinged on party supremacy, the president can decide to follow the advice of his part on any issue.
“The President is not more powerful than the party, but if he took a decision and his party took another, he must oblige the party,” Kalu said.
