Senate President Bukola Saraki has held a secret meeting with Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
The Nation reports that the meeting was based “some developments that occurred in the Senate during the week”, including the suspension of consideration of further nominations by the Executive in protest against the retention of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC), Ibrahim Magu and the consequent threats of impeachment by some Senators.
“The Senate President met with the Acting President. He actually came alone and without the paraphernalia of his office to underscore his commitment to rapprochement between the Executive and the National Assembly.
“Saraki took time to explain a few things to the Acting President, but the talks bordered on the clarification of a few misgivings, especially the rumour that he was planning to become the Acting President or instigating the Senate against the Presidency.
“He also took time to explain why the Senate wanted its resolutions respected in line with the principle of separation of powers.
