Osinbajo Meets Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan In Aso Rock

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday met behind closed doors with the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting came at a time the ruling All Progressives Congress and some senators elected on its platform are insisting that Senate president Bukola Saraki must vacate his seat having defected to the opposition PDP.

It also came as the Presidency continued to appeal to the National Assembly to cut short its ongoing vacation in order to attend to the budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission and other issues of national importance currently before the federal lawmakers.

Lawan was accompanied to the meeting by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang.
