A source said if the meeting failed to take place before the presentation of the 2017 Appropriation Bill to the Joint National Assembly by the President, it would unfailingly take place before they go on Christmas and New Year break in the next two weeks.

Vanguard gathered yesterday that the meeting with the lawmakers would be be taking place between the leadership of the party and that of the National Assembly, NASS, since the inauguration of both chambers on June 9, 2015 due to some irreconcilable differences.

According to a source, Oyegun is cashing in on the present good relationship between President Muhammadu Buhari and Senate President Bukola Saraki.
