The house of Representatives is set to summon President Buhari to brief the house on the current state of the security situation in the country.
The members of the house took its decision after a motion was moved by members from Borno State on the recent massacre of rice farmers in the state by Boko Haram group.
Speaker of the house, Femi Gbajabiamila oppose the idea, saying it was inappropriate to invite the president to disclose the actions been taken towards handling security issues in the country.
Some members of the house opposed the speaker and this lead to a heated debate.
However, after an executive session by lawmakers, Representative Ahmed Jaha, one of the sponsors moved an amendment to invite the president for briefing.
This amendment was supported and approved. Although no date has been announced for the invitation.
