President Bola Tinubu has arrived the green chamber of the House of Representatives for a joint session to address the National Assembly.

Tinubu arrived the chamber at 12,31pm.

Also at the chamber to witness the joint session include the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje; Borno State governor, Prof Babagana Umara Zulum; former deputy Speaker Patricia Etteh; former lawmakers.

Meanwhile, President Bola Tinubu who is addressing the lawmakers, said he will soon bring the 2024 Supplementary bill.

In his welcome address, the President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio said the President only stopped over to greet the lawmakers since he came to Commission the National Assembly Library as wakago.

Earlier, after the Senators and members of the House of Representatives all sat at the green chamber to address them, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas said that the visit by President Tinubu to a joint session of the National Assembly is to flag off the recitation of the new National anthem after president Tinubu gave accent to the bill.

The Speaker who apologized for the misinformation earlier passed on the visit of the President said it was a mistake on the part of the National Assembly and he apologized about it.

“The president has said that what ever speech we have to give should be shifted to June 12 which is democracy day, so to this effect the president will come flag off the recitation of the new National anthem after giving accent to it and will the after proceed to other important engagement.”
