Femi Adesina, spokesman of President Muhammadu Buhari, says his principal will respond to the summon by the house of representatives “accordingly”.

On Wednesday, the house summoned Buhari over the incessant killings in the country, particularly the killing of 19 persons in Benue state.

Suspected herdsmen had invaded a Catholic church in Benue, killing two priests and 17 worshippers.

The lawmakers said Buhari should appear at the green chamber to brief them on efforts being made to address the killings.

Speaking during a Channels TV programme on Wednesday, Adesina said though the president is yet to be officially summoned, he would react appropriately when that happens.

Asked if the president would appear before the lawmakers, the presidential spokesman said his principal may not have heard of the summon prior to the time he was being interviewed.

“When the lawmakers communicate their decision to the president, it would be handled appropriately,” he said.

He, however, did not state if the president is going to honour the summon when officially invited.

Adesina said: “It is democracy in action. The house has the right to ask anybody to appear and the president is holding the position as a trust for Nigerians. It is the mandate of Nigerians that he is holding.

“But when they communicate that decision to him, he will respond accordingly. I can’t be talking of what he will do until that decision is communicated to him.”
