Presidency denies Tinubu's planned address to National Assembly on Wednesday

Presidency denies Tinubu's planned address to National Assem

The Presidency has denied claims circulating on Tuesday that President Bola Tinubu will address a joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, disclosed this in a statement titled, “In commemoration of May 29 and the first Anniversary of the President Tinubu Administration.”

According to the statement, the announcement is false and unauthorized.

The statement clarified that the Office of the President was not involved in planning such an event.

“In furtherance of his commitment to delivering good governance, President Bola Tinubu has inaugurated strategic projects across the country.

“President Tinubu’s administration will inaugurate more transformative projects for the benefit of all Nigerians.

“In view of public commentary concerning the President delivering a speech before a Joint Sitting of the National Assembly tomorrow, May 29, 2024, it is important to state that this information is false and unauthorized as the Office of the President was not involved in the planning of the event,” the statement reads.

The statement contradicts an earlier announcement made by the President’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga. 

Onanuga had previously stated that Tinubu would address a joint session of the 10th National Assembly in Abuja on Wednesday to mark his first anniversary as Nigeria's leader.
