Umno vice president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi arrived at 4.20pm.
Police personnel were seen at the lobby of Menara Dato’ Onn but the situation was under control.
There were no large crowds of supporters, but the media turned out in droves hoping to cover the media conference that was scheduled for 4.45pm
All media personnel were required to register by Umno with only a limited number of local media outlets allowed into the meeting room on Level 39 of the tower where the event is scheduled to take place.
Despite much speculation on what Najib is about to announce, media personnel have been unable to receive much information.
