Buhari meets Saraki, Dogara
April 03 13:41 2017

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

Dogara arrived for the meeting holding inside the President’s office in the State House, Abuja at noon while Saraki arrived about 30 minutes later.

The meeting is holding at a time the two arms of govermment seem not to be at peace.

The lawmakers have in recent times disagreed with the executive over the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as substantive head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the appearance in uniform of Customs boss, Colonel Hameed Ali (rtd).

The Senate also last week declined to confirm the appointment of 27 Resident Electoral Commissioners.

President Buhari had therefore set up a committee, headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, to look at the frosty relationship between the National Assembly and the executive.

The meeting is ongoing at the file of filing this report.
