Jonathan hosts Mark, Tambuwal in Abuja

13 December 2012, 13:11

Abuja -  President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday night met with the leadership of the National Assembly behind closed door at the Presidential Villa.

The meeting, which started at about 7 p.m. was held at the First Lady's conference hall in the Villa.

It had in attendance the Senate President, Sen. David Mark; the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal and the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

Also in attendance were the Director-General of Budget Office, Dr Bright Okogu and some other presidential aides.

Emerging from the meeting, the Senate President told State House correspondents that the meeting was inconclusive and would continue on Thursday.

He, however, declined to reveal the issues discussed at the meeting.

Shortly after the brief interaction with newsmen, the attendees proceeded to a private presidential reception hall, House 7, also in the villa for a dinner with the President.
