Buhari, To Meet APC Reps Tomorrow Ahead Of Tuesday Resumption

Femi Gbajabiamila-Dogara YakubuA meeting between members of the House of Representatives elected on the platform of All Progressives Congress and President Muhammadu Buhari has been slated for Monday evening at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting, which is coming a day ahead of the resumption of the two chambers of the National Assembly, will be a last ditch effort by the president to ensure that members do not resume on a rancorous note and that the lingering leadership crisis rocking the House is resolved once and for all.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, confirmed the meeting to State House correspondents on Sunday.
“President Muhammadu Buhari will be meeting with the APC members of the House of Representatives at the new Banquet Hall of the State House on Monday at 5pm”, he simply said.
Shehu did not disclose the agenda of the meeting.
The Monday meeting will be the first time President Buhari will be meeting all APC members in the House together.
The first time, he met separately with groups loyal to the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara; and a former Minority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.
He also met privately with Gbajabiamila in his office on Friday.
Dogara and Gbajabiamila are expected to lead members of their different factions to the meeting.
