Buhari, Dogara Meet At Aso Rock

 Buhari, Dogara Meet At Aso Rock

dogaraThe Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Tuesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed door at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The closed door meeting may not be unconnected with moves to resolve the 2016 Budget crisis.
Due to grey areas in the Buget, the President had withheld his assent since the Budget was passed by the National Assembly.
But the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, did not attend the closed door meeting that lasted for about 30 minutes.
Among those at the closed door meeting included the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang.
Kyari told journalists that the Speaker could not have spoken to them because there are two leaderships of the two chambers of the National Assembly and that only one of the leaderships visited.
Enang also declined comment on the issue.
During the visit, security men attached to the Presidential Villa prevented State House correspondents from getting close to Dogara.
The security gate by the Council Chambers leading to the President’s office was locked to prevent journalists from reaching Dogara as he headed for his vehicle after the meeting.
