Buhari apologises to lawmakers, as Saraki, Dogara leave Aso Rock ‘in anger’

Senate President Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, reportedly left the presidential villa in Abuja in a state of anger on Thursday.

A source told TheCable that the duo had led some top members of the national assembly to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari over the 2018 budget.

The source said trouble started after the security operatives at the villa insisted on screening the lawmakers.

After efforts to make the security guards see reason fell through, making the nation’s number three and four citizens to have left in protest.

The lawmakers, who went said to Aso Rock in a coaster bus, were said to have converged on the residence of Saraki before dispersing.

However, President Buhari has tendered an apology to members of the national assembly over the row with security personnel earlier on Thursday.

When Buhari  reached out to them, majority of the lawmakers had left the residence of Saraki where they converged after the embarrassing encounter.

Saraki and Dogara returned to Aso Rock and were hosted to a dinner. Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president; Ita Enang and Sulaiman Kawu, presidential aides, attended the dinner.

TheCable learnt that Buhari instructed Kyari to collect the names of all the principal officers of both chambers of the national assembly and ensure tags are issued to them ahead of the meeting rescheduled to Tuesday.

Saraki confirmed to state house correspondents that the issue had been resolved.
