Among those at the closed door meeting included the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang.

 Kyari told journalists that the Speaker could not have spoken to them because there are two leaderships of the two chambers of the National Assembly and that only one of the leaderships visited.

During the visit, security men attached to the Presidential Villa prevented State House correspondents from getting close to Dogara.

The security gate by the Council Chambers leading to the President’s office was locked to prevent journalists from reaching Dogara as he headed for his vehicle after the meeting.
