The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has today said that the National assembly of Nigeria has no consitutional powers to summon the President, Muhammadu Buhari.



In a statement issued on Wednesday, Malami stated that the president cannot be summoned to give account of operational use of the armed forces.

In his words; "National Assembly has no constitutional power to envisage or contemplate a situation where the president would be summoned by the national assembly on operational use of the armed forces”.

The AGF's comments are coming amidst the President's scheduled appearance before the House of Representatives to give account of the nation's efforts towards combating the rising spate of Insecurity and economic challenges.

It is instructive to note that the President had cancelled the appearance amidst fears that he may not be able to give a proper account or field questions from enraged lawmakers.
