Saraki to address World Press Conference on Wednesday


The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, will address a World Press Conference at the foyer of the National Assembly at noon on Wednesday.

Yusuph Olaniyonu, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity made this known.

Olaniyonu did not indicate issues to be addressed at the conference in a statement he made available to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.

However, it is expected that the blockade of the NASS by the security operatives and the postponement of the emergency meeting of principal officers of both chambers might feature in his address.

Saraki had on Monday convened the emergency meeting for Tuesday but the NASS blockade by security operatives forced it to be postponed indefinitely.

In a joint statement by Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, they said that the unpleasant development at the assembly complex accounted for the postponement “until further notice’’.
