|House Of Reps Issue First Ever Presidential Summons Over Boko Haram by Jide fido(m): 6:06pm On Jun 19, 2012|
The Federal House of Representatives has had enough. Irked by the unending streak of insecurity in the country, especially in the North, the House today passed a resolution summoning President Goodluck Jonathan. The president would be displeased by the House’s latest move, if he was around to receive the summons. He and a small entourage however left for Brazil today, but the summons is sure to further strain the already shaky relationship between the president and the lower house.
The House is obviously disturbed by the bombing in Kaduna on Sunday which sparked retaliations by Christians; the shooting in Gombe on Monday and bombing in Damaturu same day, and has decided that both President Jonathan and the security chiefs need to come and answer questions about the insecurity and crises in the country.
This is the first time lawmakers have summoned a sitting president, as ministers or lower ranking government officials are the ones usually summoned.
However, the House did not give the exact date when they want the President to show. This may give him the leeway to choose a day that aligns with his schedule.

This is the true voice of anger. He had better answer the summon before this issue degenerates to a full blown coup.
