It had in attendance the Senate President, Sen. David Mark; the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal and the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

Also in attendance were the Director-General of Budget Office, Dr Bright Okogu and some other presidential aides.

Emerging from the meeting, the Senate President told State House correspondents that the meeting was inconclusive and would continue on Thursday.
