Buhari reprimanded his ministers for despising parliament.
A statement issued by the Special Assistant to the President on Publicity, Garba Shehu, quoted Buhari as saying that he would not tolerate any disrespect to the legislature from any executive branch official.
She said the president made the remarks during a meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives on Thursday, where they discussed some of the recent activities of the House.
Reports say the red alert comes hours after Niger Delta Development Authority chairman Daniel Pondei walked out of the auditorium on the agency's financial affairs.
Officials have accused the chairman of the House of Representatives' investigation committee of corruption, saying they would only attend the session if he withdrew from the investigation.
This comes just days after a crisis that led parliament to suspend a plan to employ 774,000 young people on a temporary basis, as a result of a dispute with the labor minister.
The presidential statement directed ministers and heads of government agencies to conduct their affairs in such a manner that they would not sabotage the legislature and its presidency as well as its representatives.
However, the statement did not elaborate on whether Buhari's warning meant that Minister Festus Keyamo would not comply with a parliamentary request to hire thousands of young people on a temporary basis.
