President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday evening met behind closed doors with the leadership of the National Assembly.

The meeting which was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja started at about 9.10pm with the arrival of the President.

Those who attended the meeting from the National Assembly included the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; his deputy, Lasun Yusuf; Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan; House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila; Senator Sola Adeyeye, Philip Aduda, House Chief Whip,  Al-Hassan Dogowa, and  Deputy Whip, Pally Iriase among others.

Aduda was the only member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party that attended the meeting while all others are from the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Conspicuously absent were Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, Godswill Akpabio-Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha-Deputy Minority Leader and Biodun Olujimi-Deputy Minority Whip.

Buhari was joined from the Executive arm of government by his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina; Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu and Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.

The agenda of the meeting which was still ongoing as of the time of filing this report was not made public.

It is however believed that the delay in passing the 2018 Budget, the controversial amendment to the Electoral Act and the Peace Corps Bill would form part of discussions at the meeting.
