Again, President Muhammadu Buhari has called Nigeria to speak with country’s number four citizen, the Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara.
Dogara says President Buhari is concerned about food security for Nigeria in 2017.
Dogara confirmed this in a tweet on Thursday’s afternoon, February 9, noting that President Buhari had some concerns about food security for the country.
He said: “@MBuhari called me yesterday evening. He talked about what the Executive/ Legislature must do to ensure food security for all Nigerians”.
He said the president is committed to ensuring that sufferings Nigerians went through in 2016 over food security will not repeat themselves.
This is the second top official whom President Muhammadu Buhari is calling in two days.
Late on Wednesday, February 8, the country’s number three citizen, the Senate president Bukola Saraki, confirmed that he spoke with Buhari on phone.
According to Saraki, the president was in high spirits.
Also, the elder sister of the president, Hajiya Rakiya, said she “speaks with Muhammadu regularly since he travelled to London”.
