The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has hailed the decision of the National Assembly to summon President Muhammadu Buhari before a joint sitting.
The main opposition party said the action was “completely in consonance with the mood of the nation and the expectations of Nigerians.”
The Senate had on Thursday resolved to invite President Buhari to a joint session following the killings being perpetrated by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said, “President Buhari has roundly failed in his oath of office and allegiance and must not be allowed to hide behind the service chiefs for his failures.
“Nigerians are eager to know why the Buhari administration is insensitive to their plight and why it has refused to take decisive steps to end the ceaseless killing and daily pillaging of citizens by insurgents and marauders.”
