Saraki, Dogara Summon Emergency Meeting Over Akpabio’s Defection, Other Matters

Senate President Bukola Saraki and the speaker House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara have summoned emergency meeting today over developments in the polity especially the grand reception of Godswill Akpabio into the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Though, the Special Assistant to the Senate President on International Relations, Bankole Omisore, in the notice of meeting via his Twitter handle on Monday said “NASS leadership will tomorrow meet at noon to consider some national issues. The National Assembly leadership comprises both @NGRSenate and @HouseNGR, the meeting agenda is more serious than INEC matters.

Saraki’s aide added that “It will be followed by another meeting with the leadership of @inecnigeria led by its Chairman, Prof. Mahmud Yakubu.”

Recall that the Senate minority leader, Godswill Akpabio met with President Muhammadu Buhari in London, United Kingdom over the weekend and met with the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Bola Tinubu in Anuja on Monday.

The APC is planning a mega reception to welcome him into the party on Wednesday.
