Mr. Buhari was no where to be seen as plenary commenced on Thursday in his absence.
Members of the House of Representatives had summoned President Buhari to brief the house on the true state of the security situation in the country.

The President’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie announced on Monday, December 7 that the President will address a joint session of the National Assembly.
But this has not turned out to be the case.
In response to the snub, a lawmaker from Rivers State, Solomon bob raised a point of order over the President’s refusal to honour the invitation of the house. He asked the Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila to update the House on the subject matter.
The Speaker replied that the House will wait for official communication from the President.
