The #President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, #Muhammadu Buhari, promised to work with whoever emerges as the #senate president and #house of representatives speaker of the Eighth Assembly and vowed to not to interfere with the entire process.
However, following a series of pleas to him, #President #Buhari has decided to hold a meeting with #National Assembly members, elected on the platform of the #All Progressives Congress, to resolve the crisis that has engulfed the party over the lawmakers’ battle for top seats in the federal legislature.
As at the time of filing this report, the meeting schedule to take place ahead of the convening of the #National Assembly as from 10 am was already ongoing.
It would be recalled that a mock election, organised by the leadership of the #APC on Saturday, produced #Senator Ahmed Lawan (Borno) for the Senate Presidency while #Femi Gbajabiamila (#Lagos) emerged as the party’s candidate for the election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
#Senator Bukola Saraki, who lost to Lawan, and Ibrahim Dogara of the House of Reps, have faulted the process and vowed to go ahead with their bid regardless of the outcome of the ‘primaries’ or the decision of the party.
Both Senator Saraki and Mr Dogara have already been adopted by the lawmakers under the Peoples Democratic Party.
It remains to be seen if the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari will be altering the political calculations already made ahead of the National Assembly leadership elections.
Critics, though, opine that this move by President Buhari to resolve lingering crisis tearing the party apart may have come too late to make any meaningful impact on today’s proceedings at the National Assembly.
