President Muhammadu Buhari has agreed to address the House of Representatives on the state of insecurity in the country, as requested by the lawmakers.
According to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, a date has been agreed on and it will be communicated soon.
Gbajabiamila spoke with State House Correspondents after meeting with Buhari in Aso Rock.
The House of Representatives had on Tuesday summoned President Buhari to address lawmakers on efforts being made to curb the security challenges in some parts of the country.
The debate on tuesday had earlier turned rowdy after the Speaker appealed that it would be inappropriate to invite the president to disclose the actions being taken towards handling the security situation in the country.

The Speaker had described it as counter-productive. But the House then went into an executive session to resolve the matter.
After the executive session which was held behind closed doors, the House resumed and Representative Ahmed Jaha who was one of the sponsors, moved an amendment to invite the President to brief on the security situation in the country.
His amendment was seconded and unanimously adopted.
