Osinbajo Holds Closed Door Meeting With Dogara, Others



Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, had a closed door meeting with some principal officers of the House of Representatives on Thursday night, July 13.

The meeting which was held inside Osinbajo’s official residence, Aguda House, inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja was said to have started at about 10pm.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, led other principal officers to the
meeting.

Some presidential aides also joined Osinbajo at the meeting which was believed to be part of efforts aimed at resolving the row between the National Assembly and the Executive.

The House of Representatives had on Tuesday, July 11 handed down a seven-day ultimatum to the Acting President to inaugurate the two ministers-designate that were screened by the Senate in May.

The Senate has also been at loggerheads with the Executive over the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, who has remained in office despite that the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly had rejected his nomination twice.
