It was gathered that shortly after his arrival in Abuja at about 1:00am, Sahara Reporters write that  Buhari was briefed about the crisis, and he immediately summoned all lawmakers elected on the platform of the APC to an emergency meeting at 9:00am on Tuesday to take place at the International Convention Center.

However, there are indications that Senator Bukola Saraki may not honour the invitation to meet with Buhari following his endorsement by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) early this morning.

APC legislators are expected to move from the meeting to the National Assembly to partake in the inauguration of the assembly.
