10th Assembly Inauguration may be delayed, due to the tactics of Tinubu- Source

According to a news that was published by the Leadership Newspaper online this morning, it was reported that save for last-minute change of plan, there were strong indications that the elections of presiding officers of the incoming 10th National Assembly, might be delayed on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023, which is the day for the inauguration of the new Assembly.

It was reported that some impeccable sources, told LEADERSHIP Correspondent that, given foreseeable stalemate in the numbers of lawmakers-elect, who are backing the annointed candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the two chambers of the 10th National Assembly on one hand, and the ones supporting those insisting on contesting for the presiding offices against their party’s directive, the proclamation instrument that would be used by the President (Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu) to the Clerk of the National Assembly (CNA), Sani Magaji Tambuwal, for the inauguration of the 10th Assembly, might be temporarily withheld on the inauguration day.

It was reported that this proclamation letter from the President of the country, is an instrument that will empower the CNA, to proceed to inaugurate the 10th Assembly of the bi-cameral legislature, in their respective chambers before the election of the presiding officers.

The source said, “The 10th Assembly Inauguration may be delayed, due to the tactics of Tinubu. The tactic to be employed by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who would have been sworn-in as President of the country as at that time, will be used to buy more time, to reign in those that are considered as dissident lawmakers-elect on the platform of All Progressives Congress, in order to avoid defeat for the annointed party candidates and embarrassment for the President and party.”
