The Ninth Assembly of the House of Representatives has said that House has never apologized to the Presidency for requesting the invitation of President, Muhammad Buhari to brief the nation on the state of insecurity in the country.

In a statement released and signed by the spokesman of the House, Rep Benjamin Kalu on Monday, also stated that President or the Presidency as the case may be, never sought for an apology from the House for carrying out her constitutional responsibility to Nigerian electorate.

While it has come to the knowledge of the House that few sections of the Media reported that the House apologized to the Presidency over the resolution of the House which arose from the motion sponsored by members from Borno State on insecurity in the country.

“When then did the media get the report that the House as an institution apologized to anyone? Media professionals are advised to uphold the ethnic of their profession. For the avoidance of doubt, the House never apologized to anyone for exercising her constitutional mandate”, the statement said.

The 9th Assembly of the House of Representatives under the leadership of Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila will not do anything to desecrate or destroy the critical institution of democracy, the legislature. “We strongly believe that President Muhammad Buhari subscribes to these Democratic ethos and ideals as well”.
