Yakubu Dogara And Pastor Bakare Meet With Buhari At The Villa

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has held a meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, in his office in the Presidential Villa.

It is the second time the Speaker of the House of Representatives is visiting the Presidential Villa within two weeks.

Political watchers say Friday’s visit may be in connection with the rift in the National Assembly and how to improve on the relationship between the Executive and Legislative arms of government, following allegations of padding of the 2016 budget.

But the Speaker told reporters after the meeting that he just came to see the President and would not say anything to the press because he is on vacation.

Also at the Presidential Villa was the General Overseer of the Later Rain Assembly Pastor Tunde Bakare.

Pastor Bakare entered the Villa at about 2:45pm local time and went straight to the President’s office for a meeting also said to be private.
