2019: Saraki convenes emergency NASS meeting

Senate President Bukola Saraki will meet with the leaderships of the two chambers of the National Assembly on Tuesday, reports say.

A Saraki spokesperson Yusuph Olaniyonu confirmed the Senate President is planning a meeting but declined saying more.

Reports, however, indicate the meeting will hold by 12 noon on Tuesday, and last an hour. NASS leadership would then meet the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, at 1pm.

The Senate and the House of Representatives, on July 24, went on recess and are not expected back until September 25.

Tuesday’s planned meeting, reports say, will focus on the spate of defections, the alleged plot to remove Saraki and the pending 2019 elections supplementary budget of N242.9 billion.
