President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki on the occasion of his 54th birthday.

In a goodwill message to the celebrant, the President described the Senate President as “one of the most influential politicians of our time who has made tremendous impact on the country.”

According to a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, President Buhari noted that Senator Saraki has successfully kept the memory of his late father alive by identifying with the grassroots in his home state.

“While wishing the Senate President many more prosperous years ahead, the President calls for closer cooperation between the executive and the legislature to ensure the smooth implementation of government policies and programmes.

According to President Buhari, despite the principle of separation of powers, both arms of government should be united in the promotion of the common good of the people.

He notes that whatever differences that may occasionally arise between the two branches of government should not be allowed to compromise their common goals of promoting the greater progress and development of Nigeria,” the statement read in part.
