Tinubu’s Aides Clash Over Presidential Address to National Assembly

A disagreement has erupted between two of President Bola Tinubu’s aides, Bayo Onanuga and Ajuri Ngelale, over whether the president will address the National Assembly on Wednesday, May 29.

Ajuri Ngelale, the presidential media aide, stated that President Tinubu has no plans to address the National Assembly, describing the announcement as “false and unauthorized.” According to Ngelale, the Office of the President was not involved in planning the event.


On the other hand, Bayo Onanuga, the President’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, had earlier announced that President Tinubu would address a joint session of the National Assembly to commemorate 25 years of democratic rule in Nigeria.

The presidency has since clarified that President Tinubu will not be addressing the National Assembly on Wednesday, May 29, contradicting Onanuga’s earlier statement.

In a statement on Tuesday evening, Ngelale emphasized that President Tinubu’s administration remains committed to delivering good governance and has inaugurated strategic projects across the country. He added that more transformative projects will be inaugurated for the benefit of all Nigerians.


This development highlights a apparent rift between the two aides, causing confusion and uncertainty among Nigerians. The presidency’s clarification has put the matter to rest, but the public disagreement between Onanuga and Ajuri has raised questions about the internal workings of the presidency.
