President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to meet with Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday night at the Aso Rock Villa.

The crucial meeting will hold at 10 p.m. at the First Lady’s Conference Room in the Presidential Villa.

The parley comes against the backdrop of the crisis that has engulfed the National Assembly following the emergence of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Dogara and other principal officers against the wish of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

Saraki himself is also scheduled to meet with Buhari at a later date, with the aim of resolving the crisis before the lawmakers return for plenary in the next three weeks.

Also expected at the meeting with President Buhari are Femi Gbajabiamila and a host of other House of Representatives members rooting behind him to get a slot as principal officer of the House as directed by the APC.
