Buhari, Saraki

Why I Came To See Buhari – Saraki

By Ola Adeola

 

Senate President Bukola Saraki Friday said his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari was merely “a general felicitation”

“It did not go beyond that”, Saraki told probing journalists.

There was a perception the visit by the senate president was like warming to President Buhari, after the shooting down by the senate of the latter’s $30 million external borrowing request.

Speaking on the loan request, Saraki said: “We should not look at the loan request as a reflection of the relationship between the Executive and the Legislature. Don’t let us politicise very important issues. As we said, this is work in progress.”
