The Nigeria’s federal house of representatives has denied that the house apologised to the Presidency over the resolution of the house which arose from the motion sponsored by members Borno state requesting for the invitation of the President to brief the nation on the state of insecurity in the country.
This was contained in a press release by the chairman, committee on media and public affairs, Hon Benjamin Kalu and made to journalists on Monday morning.
The statement said the President never sought for an apology from the House of Reps for carrying out her constitutional responsibility to the Nigerian electorate.
“Where then did the media get the report that the House as an institution apologised to anyone? Media professionals are advised to uphold the ethics of their profession.”
“For the avoidance of doubt, the house never apologized to anyone for exercising her constitutional mandate and the 9th Assembly of the House of Representatives under the leadership of Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila will not do anything to desecrate or destroy the critical institution of democracy – the Legislature.
“We strongly believe that President Muhammadu Buhari subscribes to these democratic ethoes and ideals as well.”
