There was increased presence of policemen and other security operatives at all the gates leading to the National Assembly complex on Monday. Visitors and members of staff were required to identify themselves before being allowed to enter the complex.

Findings also showed that within the complex, access to the popular ‘White House’ was restricted by security
operatives and Sergeant-at-Arms personnel.

The White House is the area housing the Senate and the House of Representatives chambers, as well as the main lobby and offices of the Clerk to the National Assembly.

As part of measures to prevent security breaches and control crowd today (Tuesday), all members of staff and
persons having any function to perform must be accredited.

Senators and members-elect were also accredited, starting from last Saturday.
Group protests at National Assembly.
Also on Monday, a group under the aegis of Buhari/Osinbajo Coalition, protested at the National Assembly
Complex over what it called ‘imposition’ of National Assembly leaders.

Coordinator of the group, Yusuf Nadabo, decried the mock election by the APC on Saturday which produced Lawan
and George Akume (Benue North West) as Senate President and Deputy Senate President. The election also saw Femi Gbajabiamila and Tahir Monguno emerging as the APC consensus candidate for the House of Representative speaker and deputy speaker.

“We believe in sustainability of democracy. We don’t want a mock election. We want a proper election,” it said.
