The Lawmakers decried the lawlessness exhibited by the Nigerian Government led by President Buhari as a bridge of Nigerian Constitution.

In view of this the Nigerian Lawmakers including the Senate have summoned the Minister for Finance, Minister of Defence and the Central Bank Governor.
The presidency in a swift reaction has said it carried out the unconstitutional withdrawal from the country's treasury in anticipation of approval from the Senate.
The unconstitutional withdrawal occurred three months before the lawmakers got an information about it.
