Economic Recession: Senate Invites Buhari To Address Joint Session Of NASS
The senate on Thursday invited President Muhammadu Buhari to brief a joint session of the national assembly on his plans for getting the economy out of recession.
The invitation is in concurrence with that of the House of Representatives which passed similar resolution on September 22, inviting the president to explain to the legislature his plans to deal with the economic economy.
When the question of whether to invite the president was put by the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, the senators answered in the affirmative.
The Senate however did not specify a date on which the President Commander in Chief is to brief the joint session.
The Senate also recommended the need for true federalism and amendment of section 162 of the constitution to review the sharing formula between the Federal Government and State governments.
