President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
ROYAL NEWS gathered that the President also met with the former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Buhari met with the two senators separately in his office shortly after they joined him for Jumat prayers at the mosque inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Further checks revealed that the Senate President was accompanied to the President’s office by Senator Danjuma Goje.
The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Muhammed, also attended the Friday prayers but left immediately after the prayers ended.
Saraki later told State House correspondents that Buhari’s external borrowing request that was rejected by the Senate was a work in progress.
While warning against the reading of politics into the issue, he also said the development should not be viewed as a reflection of the relationship between the Executive and the Legislature.
Saraki said,”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.”
