There seems to be a growing confusion in the Presidency over President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s plan to address the National Assembly on the state of the nation today, Wednesday 29th May, 2024.

Incoordination over Tinubu’s address at National Assembly

There was an earlier statement on Tuesday by Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information & Strategy, Bayo Onanuga who had confirmed that the president will address a joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday.

According to Onanuga, the President will not broadcast to the nation over his first anniversary in office but will mark his anniversary by commissioning the National Assembly Library and Resource Center in the National Assembly complex which will now be known as Bola Ahmed Tinubu Building.

Onanuga’s starement read, “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not broadcast to the nation on Wednesday to celebrate his first anniversary as the leader of Nigeria.

“Instead, the President will address a joint session of the National Assembly, which has lined up a program to commemorate 25 years of the nation’s democratic journey at both the executive and legislative levels.

“At the end of the speeches, President Tinubu will commission the National Assembly Library and Resource Center, now to be known as Bola Ahmed Tinubu Building.”

Contrary to Onanuga’s statement, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale has said that the circulated information was false and not authorised by the office of the President.

Ngelale, disclosed this in a statement titled, “In commemoration of May 29 and the first Anniversary of the President Tinubu Administration.”

The statement read, “In furtherance of his commitment to delivering good governance, President Bola Tinubu has inaugurated strategic projects across the country.

“President Tinubu’s administration will inaugurate more transformative projects for the benefit of all Nigerians.

“In view of public commentary concerning the President delivering a speech before a Joint Sitting of the National Assembly tomorrow, May 29, 2024, it is important to state that this information is false and unauthorized as the Office of the President was not involved in the planning of the event.”
