Buhari hosts 109 senators for dinner tonight

President Muhammadu Buhari will tonight (Tuesday), July 13) host the 109 senators of the National Assembly for a dinner at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja.

Notice of the meeting scheduled for 8pm was conveyed in a letter received from the State House and read during plenary by the President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan.

The invitation letter for the scheduled meeting between the President and senators reads: “I write to inform the Distinguished President of the Senate, that President Muhammadu Buhari will host a dinner of Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on Tuesday, 13th July, 2021, at 8pm 20:00 hrs.

“The venue is at the State House Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.”

The Senate had on April 27, 2021 reached a resolution for its leadership to schedule a meeting with the President to enable all 109 senators meet with him to discuss the issue of insecurity in the country

The upper legislative chamber alsoresolved to summon the Service Chiefs to brief lawmakers on steps taken so far to address the rising spate of insecurity in the country.

It also mandated the Joint Committees on Foreign Affairs; Defence and National Security to engage the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, National Security Adviser, Babagana Munguno, Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Salihi Magashi (rtd) and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, on the regional implications of the recent development in Chad.

These formed part of resolutions reached, following a motion on the deadly activities of bandits and Boko Haram terrorists in some local government areas of Niger State and other parts of Nigeria.

Sponsor of the motion, Senator Sani Mohammed Musa (APC Niger East), had through Orders 42 and 52 of the Senate Standing Rules, raised alarm that for seven years, “Niger East Senatorial District of Niger State have come under constant and sustained multiple deadly attacks by heartless, venomous and hydra-headed Boko Haram terrorists who are always heavily armed with assorted sophisticated and dangerous weapons unleashing their horror on our innocent populace.”

According to the lawmaker, the negative effects of atrocities committed by the terrorists have led to a collapse of the local economies and educational system in the affected areas.
