President Muhammadu Buhari will next Thursday address a joint session of the National Assembly on efforts by his government to deal with insecurity in the country.

The Presidency made this known in a statement on its official Twitter handle on Monday night.

The message read, “President @MBuhari will address a joint session of the National Assembly (@nassnigeria) on Thursday, December 10, 2020.”

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila had last week paid a visit to President Buhari where he hinted that the President agreed to address citizens via the Parliament on the security challenges confronting the nation

The House of Representatives had also last week Tuesday invited the President to appear on the floor of the Green Chamber to offer an explanation on the rising spate of insecurity in the country.

The invitation was a sequel to a motion of urgent national importance brought by the Borno State caucus over last weekend’s killing of farmers in the state.

The Senate had also in a separate resolution asked the President to sack his service chiefs.
