Turning Down Reps Invitation: Buhari should apologise to Nigerians- Fayose

As many Nigerians were taken aback by the refusal of President Mohammadu Buhari refusal to honour the invitation of the House of Representatives to appear before it, Forrmer Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has also lent his voice to the matter.

The former two-term Governor described President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to honour its invitation as a sign of a dictatorship.

The lower house has summoned Buhari to come and give explanation on the high level of insecurity in Nigeria.

The  Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila had assured Nigerians that the President had agreed to honour its invitation.

But the Attorney General and the Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami said that the house lacks the power to compel the President to appear before it.

In his reaction via his Tweeter  Fayose said: “I said it on December 1, that President Buhari won’t honour the House of Reps invitation on the worsened security situation in the country. Truly he didn’t.

“With a democratically elected President who does not have regard for other arms of government, how else do you describe a dictator.

“Before and after 2015, those of you who were opposed to my views on Buhari’s Presidency then cannot but agree today that Nigerians were misled to have elected him.

“Methinks they should publicly apologize for misleading Nigerians just like others have been doing.”
