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.

The tweet read: “@MBuhari called me yesterday evening. He talked about what the Executive/ Legislature must do to ensure food security for all Nigerians.”
