"House of Reps Speaker, Yakubu Dogara NOT invited to meeting with President" - Aide

Contrary to reports that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara was invited to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari Wednesday night, the Speaker has denied knowledge of the meeting.

There had been reports that Buhari would hold a meeting with Dogara and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila who was the choice of the APC leadership for the Speakership position, as part of efforts to douse the crises emanating from the election of the House leadership.

The Special Adviser Media and Public Affairs to the Speaker, Mr. Turaki Adamu Hassan, said in a statement that Dogara was not invited to any meeting.
