President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday held a closed-door meeting with President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Saraki was accompanied to the President’s office by Senator Danjuma Goje.
Saraki later told State House correspondents after the meeting that Buhari’s external borrowing request that was rejected by the Senate was a work in progress.
”I came here to pray. I have finished praying and I just had a general felicitation with the President. It did not go beyond that.
“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.”
Buhari who tweeted about the meeting via his official Twitter account @MBuhari wrote, “This afternoon I received in audience Senate Pres @bukolasaraki. The Executive & Legislature will continue to work together for Nigeria’s progress.”
