The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday, faulted the statement credited to Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, that the National Assembly has no powers to summon President Muhammadu Buhari.

PDP’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that Malami can’t speak for the president.

Following the issue of insecurity, the House of Representatives had invited Buhari.

Reacting to the invitation, Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, had confirmed that the president would today, Thursday, appear before the joint session of the National Assembly

But, Malami had declared that the lawmakers had no constitutional backing to invite Buhari over security issues.

The AGF had insisted that security issues were on the exclusive list of the Executive.

However, PDP’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a chat said: “That’s Malami’s position, he’s not Buhari’s spokesperson so if the president ignores the National Assembly it’s another thing entirely.

“Malami does not speak for anybody; he spoke for himself. He’s not the court so can’t arrogate the powers of the court, we are in a democratic setting.

“Let’s wait and not jump the gun if Mr president fails to appear before the National Assembly then there will be official communication to that effect as to why he didn’t go.

“The Speaker of the House of Representatives is supposed to read this official communication on the floor of the House, and if there is none, we will listen to what Gbajabiamila has today.”
