The Presidency on Tuesday said President Bola Tinubu will address a joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday to mark his first year in office.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga.

Onanuga said President Tinubu would not give a 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 programme to commemorate 25 years of the nation’s democratic journey at both the executive and legislative levels,” he said.

Onanuga said President Tinubu’s speech would dwell on the achievements of his administration and Nigeria’s democracy since the military ceded power in 1999.

He said former Senate President, Senator David Mark, former speaker of the House of Representatives and now President Tinubu’s Chief of Staff, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila were all lined up to address the parliament.

Onanuga added that also lined up to speak is the former military ruler, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, who handed over power to civilian administration in 1999.

“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,” he said.
