A document dated May 30, 2019 which announced the presidential proclamation of the first session of the Ninth National Assembly billed for June 11 caused confusion at the federal parliament on Monday.

The document, which had the seal of the President and claimed to have been signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, was not addressed to any particular official of the National Assembly.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, whose responsibility it is to convey such document to the National Assembly, denied knowledge of such communication when our correspondent contacted him.

Enang appealed to The Punc to suspend any action on the document pending his confirmation.

He was yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.

Attempts to confirm the authenticity of the document from the office of the Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, who would execute the proclamation, also failed on Monday.

The Director of Information of the federal parliament, Mr Rawlings Agada, told The Punch that he could not confirm the receipt of such communications since the clerk was not available for the necessary clarifications.
