A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has revealed ways Buhari will punish lawmakers who summoned him over insecurity.
A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, told members of the House of Representatives to be ready to face punitive actions from the federal government for summoning President Muhammadu Buhari to appear before the House.
Fayose made the statement on Tuesday, December 1, in reaction to the summons issued by the lawmakers demanding the president to brief the House on the true state of the security situation in the country.

The former governor alleged via Twitter that the government would start harassing the lawmakers who spearheaded the motion for the invitation through the following means:
- He said that the lawmakers should expect an invitation from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
- Fayose claimed the bank accounts of the House of Representatives members would be frozen by the anti-graft commission.
- The former governor also alleged that the lawmakers could be arrested for plotting to bring down Buhari’s government.
The politician, however, stated that he would be surprised if the president decides to honour the invitation. Fayose further criticised the current lawmakers in the National Assembly.
He said the federal lawmakers who should be adequately representing the people have become like toothless bulldogs.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari was on Tuesday, December 1, told to resign from the seat of power following the spate of attacks and rising insecurity in the country.
Making this demand is the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) which slammed the presidency for being insensitive to the attacks on Nigerians living in local communities.
The forum, which spoke through its spokesperson Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, said lives under the current government are valueless.
Osinbajo said the federal government needs the experience of locals affected by insurgency, especially in terms of intelligence gathering.
He stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is already looking at how to deal with the insurgency in more innovative and effective ways.
