I’ll report Service Chiefs to the President – Gbajabiamila


The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said he will report the service chiefs to President Muhammadu Buhari, for failing to honour an invitation to a meeting on security.
The service chiefs were absent at a meeting scheduled to take place at the National Assembly Complex on Friday
Other security officers including, Mohammed Adamu, Inspector-general of police; Yusuf Bichi, Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), and Muhammed Babandede, Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), were present.
Those who sent representatives included: Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff; Sadique Abubakar, Chief of Air Staff; Ibok-Ete Ibas, Chief of Naval Staff; and Bashir Magashi, Minister of Defence.
Gbajabiamila said: “I am almost embarrassed to tell you the truth. There was no call placed to my office to explain why, just sending accountants and representatives,” the speaker, who was angry, said
“We will postpone this meeting till Monday morning, I will personally see the president myself because we are supposed to work as one.
“I know some of these chiefs were somewhere yesterday night, I’m aware of that. It shows the disdain for this institution.
“I don’t know of any parliament in the world where the head of parliament will call the service chiefs on a nagging problem on how to resolve it and you won’t show up
