i was clearly recalled that Abubarkar Malami, the Attorney general of the federation( AGF) made a statement on Wednesday by saying the National Assembly has no Constitutional power to summon the president.

But here is falana response to the statement." On his own part, the honourable (AGF) has questioned the constitutional power of the national assembly to invite the president on the grounds that as the commander in chief of armed forces he cannot be compelled to disclose operational details of the defense of the country.

"With respect, the Mr president is under the moral and legal obligation to honor the invitation. having accepted the invitation, the president should not allow him self to embarrassed by turning round to turn down the invitation.

"By the combined effect of section 88 and 89 of the constitution the national assembly is empowered to summon any public officer including the president in the course of conducting investigation into any matter with respect to which has power to make laws and the conduct to affairs of any person, authority, ministry or government Department charged or intend to be charged with the duty of or responsibility for executing or administering laws enacted by the national assembly.
