President Muhammadu Buhari will go ahead with the breaking of fast with the leadership of the National Assembly. This was confirmed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu who refuted claims that the Presidency may have put off the breaking of fast between President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the national assembly scheduled yesterday.
According to Shehu, “Please don’t call it cancellation because nothing like that happened. The President’s Iftar for the leadership of the National Assembly was postponed, to be rescheduled for another date. “This arose from the clash of schedules. You know the President spent the first fourteen days of the fast out of the country. The schedule was put up hurriedly on his return to ensure that all interests are accommodated. It turned out that the date fixed for the parliament could not be sustained due prior commitments some of the invitees had. We are expecting that a new date will be appointed.”
