“You can’t summon Buhari anyhow” – Presidency tells National Assembly by yungcrae(: 4:19 pm On Oct 07, 2016
The presidency has revealed that it is yet to be contacted via official channels over the summon issued to President Buhari by the National Assembly.
The National Assembly had on Thursday passed a motion inviting President Muhammadu Buhari to address the legislature on efforts being made by his administration on the current economic recession.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu stated that the president had not been summoned through the established channels of communication.
Mr. Shehu said: “There is a channel of communication between the Presidency and the National Assembly which we utilize. So, if they communicate to us through those channels, then the presidency will reply”.
“But as it is now, it remains a newspaper report and newspaper is not a means of communication for the presidency. When they communicate, the presidency will also communicate back”, he said.
