President Muhammadu Buhari met the All Progressives Congress (APC) members-elect of the National Assembly on the night of Monday, June 10, to put finishing touches to preparations ahead of the next day’s Assembly inauguration.
The President’s meeting with the group came shortly after the APC Governors met separately in a closed-door meeting to discuss on the same agenda.
The President was accompanied by his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo; National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, APC Governors and members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
Meanwhile, the APC at its meeting on Sunday, June 9, endorsed the candidacy of Senator Ahmed Lawan as President of the 9th Senate, and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as Deputy Senate President.
They also endorsed Femi Gbajabiamila as Speaker of the Houses and Idris Wase as his Deputy.
