President Tinubu's Meeting With Opposition Parties Rescheduled

President Tinubu's Meeting With Opposition Parties Reschedul

The proposed meeting between President Bola Tinubu and members-elect of the coming House of Representatives in the opposition parties has been rescheduled to hold on Thursday.

Tinubu was to meet with opposition members-elect in the 10th National Assembly on Monday.

However, a notice to members-elect, on Sunday, read, “This is to inform members-elect that the meeting with the President has been postponed till Thursday.

"Proper communication will be sent subsequently. Regards.”

The meetings are coming ahead of the inauguration of the 10th Assembly on June 13, 2023, when the chosen candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress would either be adopted or be contested against.

Though the notice did not state the agenda of the meeting, it may be unconnected with the controversy caused by the leadership zoning plan of the APC.

The National Working Committee of the APC had on May 8, 2023, released the zoning formula for the leadership of the 10th National Assembly, picking Godswill Akpabio (Akwa-Ibom/South-South) President of the Senate; Jibrin Barau (Kano/North-West) for Deputy President of the Senate; Tajudeen Abbas (Kaduna/North-West) for Speaker; and Benjamin Kalu (Abia/South-East) for Deputy Speaker.
