Refusal of some Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies of Government to honour invitations of the National Assembly has been identified as the bane of crisis between the executive and legislature
The Leader of the house, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, stated this while representing the Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila at the ongoing investigative hearing on Oil spill clean-ups in the Oil producing states of Nigeria.
Ado-Doguwa called on stakeholders from both private and public sectors not to take the house for granted adding that failure of invitees to honour invites from the parliament remains an act of insubordination.
President Muhammadu Buhari had last week directed members of his Cabinet and leaders of various MDA’s not to disrespect the Parliament.
