According to a statement issued on Saturday by the National Secretary of the party, Iyiola Omisore, the Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, will attend the meeting.

The meeting will take place at the Banquet Hall of the State House and all lawmakers have been advised to arrive at the venue by noon.

The party directed all the elected lawmakers to appear at the venue with their certificates of returns.

“This is to inform all Senators-Elect and members of the House of Representatives-Elect of the All Progressives Congress (APC), that they are invited to a parley with the Party’s National Leadership.

“The meeting which will be attended by the President-Elect and Vice President-Elect will be held at the State House Banquet Hall, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

“Senators/House of Representatives-Elect must come to the meeting with their Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Certificates of Return and must come alone,” the statement reads.

Although the agenda of the meeting was not stated in the invitation, it was gathered that it will centre on the election of the leadership of the 10th Senate and the House of Representatives, which will be inaugurated in June.

The new members were elected on 25 February.
