In a landmark event symbolizing Nigeria’s democratic endurance, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is expected to join a joint session of the Senate and House of Representatives in Abuja tomorrow, Wednesday.

Organized at the request of Africa Today News, New York, the gathering in the Chamber of the House of Representatives at the National Assembly will commemorate the 25th anniversary of Nigeria’s consistent democratic journey.

Accompanying President Tinubu will be an array of dignitaries, including former national leaders, political party executives, governors, and past political office bearers.

One of the day’s highlights will be President Tinubu’s inauguration of the National Assembly Library, which has been aptly named in his honor.

A recent statement detailed the event’s agenda: “The National Assembly’s joint meeting to honor the quarter-century of democracy and also to open the library complex named after Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu will bring together not only the President but also prominent figures like Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, who is anticipated to reflect on Nigeria’s pathway to democracy.”

The session will also feature insights from former Senate President, Senator David Mark, and former Speaker of the House, now Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, who will appraise the progress and experiences of their respective chambers.

The gathering will also see the attendance of luminaries such as Vice President Kashim Shettima, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, leaders of national and regional governors’ forums, the FCT Minister, and various others.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio will preside over the session, centered on the theme: “25 years of the National Assembly: Lessons and opportunities”. President Tinubu is slated to address the parliament on this occasion.

As reported by Africa Today News, New York, this session stands as a testament to Nigeria’s uninterrupted democratic governance since the transition from military rule in 1999, marking the onset of the nation’s Fourth Republic.
