The Speaker of House of Representatives Mr Femi Gbajabiamila said Monday that the National Assembly would continue to assist President Muhammadu Buhari as he works hard to find lasting solutions to the present security challenges in the nation.
Gbajabiamila said in an interview with State House correspondents after a meeting with the President.
“We always speak about the state of security because that is number one; we spoke about the economy; we spoke about the politics of it all. At least he has a listening ear.
“We proffer ideas and he tells us his own views and we come to some consensus one way or the other,” he said.
When asked about his meeting with the President concerning security, Gabjabiamila said: “Some of these things, you cannot be privy to them for now. We are still working on a way out and all I will always say is, uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.”
He said the President is very passionate about finding a solution to the problem.
“The President is dealing with a very difficult situation and he is as passionate as anybody else, to bring it to a closure and we are here to help him achieve that,” he said.
He said the House of Representatives had since set up a special committee that will offer solution to the problem.
“You are aware that the House of Representatives sometimes passed a resolution where we set up a special ad-hoc committee, which involves all Principal Officers and 30 other members of the House and we are going to start that process by looking at different solutions and we would be bringing the report to the President.
“He is fully aware of it and he is open to any and everything that would help us in coming to a resolution in this security matter,” he said.
