Sources in the Clerk of the National Assembly (CNA), have denied receiving communication to delay the inauguration of the 8th National Assembly (NASS) from President Buhari.
This is in contradiction to statements from Mallam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity. He was rumored as saying that a message was sent to the CNA to inform them of a meeting between President Buhari and APC National Assembly members where the need for a NASS inaugural delay was discussed.
The CNA source, who spoke anonymously, said that there has not been any official letter or SMS message from the Presidency calling for an inaugural delay.
The source refuted Garba Shehu’s claims by saying that “anybody that has any form of evidence like that, I challenge the person to make it public.”
