10th NASS: Tinubu meets lawmakers tomorrow

Ahead of the June 13 inauguration of the 10th National Assembly, the President, Bola Tinubu, would officially meet with the lawmakers-elect across party lines on Thursday, June 8.

The invitation of the president was conveyed in an official letter from the State House to the Senate and read on Wednesday by the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege who presided over the plenary.

According to the letter, the meeting between the lawmakers and the president would take place at the State House Conference Centre, State House, Abuja, on Thursday, June 8th at 2 pm.

The PUNCH had reported that the president had initially fixed separate meetings between All Progressive Congress and opposition lawmakers slated for Sunday and Monday respectively.

However, sources stated that the meeting was rescheduled because the People’s Democratic Party noted that they were not informed of the notice, hence could not let their members attend the meeting.

Meanwhile, the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan sat on the floor for Senator Omo-Agege to preside over the plenary.

According to Lawan, he was sitting on the floor because he was trying to get used to being a floor member.
