This was also confirmed on Tuesday by the special adviser to the President on information and strategy, Bayo Onanuga.

He added that President Tinubu’s speech at the joint sitting of the National Assembly will dwell on the achievements of his administration and Nigeria’s democracy since the military handed over power in 1999.

However, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale in another statement on Tuesday, denied a report that President Bola Tinubu will address a joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday.

According to him, the Office of the President was not involved in the planning of the event.
