Saraki charged the people representing President Muhammadu Buhari to see to it they always speak with facts to support their claims. He refuted claims the 8th senate did not organise a Security Summit At NAF Conference Centre on Feb. 8 and 12, 2018.
The statement read: “The Media Office of Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the immediate-past President of the Senate, notes with dismay the claim contained in the seventh paragraph of a press statement released on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 and signed by Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity) in which President Muhammadu Buhari was quoted as saying that “he tried very hard to get the 8th (National) Assembly to do same (organise a security summit) for the sake of the country “and I didn’t succeed much. But time has proved me right”.
“The President was said to have made the claim while receiving the report of the National Security Summit held on May 26, 2021 by the 9th House of Representatives from Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila.
