Service Chiefs Shun Reps As Speaker Runs To Buhari For Help by Limitednow: 4:23pm On Sep 20
Heads of security agencies in the country on Friday shunned an invitation extended to them by the leadership of the House of Representatives.

The lower legislative chamber has summoned the service chiefs to a meeting bordering on national security.

While lawmakers were already seated waiting for their guests to arrive, TODAY POLITICS gathered that some of them failed to honour the invitation.

The gathering had in attendance; Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu; the DG of the DSS, Yusuf Bichi; and the Comptroller General of Nigerian Immigration Services, Muhammad Babandede.

This has angered the speaker of the house, Femi Gbajabiamila, who condemned the action saying he will take the issue to President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Speaker @femigbaja has condemned the Service Chiefs for shunning the @HouseNGR invitation to discuss National Security issues,” a tweet on the official Twitter handle of the top lawmaker said.

“He described their actions as an insult to the Parliament and promised to take the development to President @MBuhari,” it added.

Meanwhile, Mr Gbajabiamila has apologised to those who honoured the invitation and rescheduled it to hold on Monday.

This is not the first time the legislature is displeased by the action of agencies under the executive arm of government.

Under the immediate past National Assembly, led by former President of the 8th Senate, Bokula Saraki, government appointees took advantage of the rift between executive and the legislature at the time to disobey the latter.

Such scenario is no longer existing since the APC took over the affairs of the two arms of government after the general election this year.

This medium, as at press time, could not independently ascertain why the security chiefs shunned the green chamber despite meeting the president recently.

This level of high headedness brazenly displayed by top military brass and other appointees to the legislative and judiciary arms of the government is sickening.
How can we hold people accountable who have been entrusted with duty guided by the constitution and paid with taxpayer's money.
I am still wondering when or if Nigeria can get it right.

Lol does Buhari care? If you guys want them to show up pass a law. NASS should also consider passing aconstitutional amendment to impeach executive appointees. Just copy the united states and you'll have power to impeach anyone if you have 2/3 majority.

They're only answerable to the false affidavit swearer and certificate forger. So the reps should go swear affidavit before they can be honoured with an audience.

So all these guys were in attendance?
They told us the MAIN guys in attendance but did not let us know who is missing.
And some enemies of the state are already masturbating on the thread.
'Slow' people everywhere!

Reps and Senate can oonly bark but can't bite because they brought this upon themselves in the first place. They should deal with it when they're not above board themself.

It beats me o bruh.
I insist that the HOR lost their clout sometime in 2013-2015. For some reason, no one takes them seriously. Their summons almost always ends up on deaf ears

So everyone should stop honouring summons because nothing substantial to you, has come out of the past summons, right?
