President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday reviewed the relationship between the Executive arm of the government and the outgoing 8th National Assembly and concluded that it wasn’t the best.
The President spoke when he hosted the Senate President Bukola Saraki, House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers of the National Assembly to breaking of the Ramadan fast at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Saraki and Dogara dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the run up to the last general elections. While Saraki lost his bid to return to the Senate, Dogara won his election.
“Relations between the Executive and the Legislature were not the best in the 8th National Assembly. I sincerely hope each one of us will do his utmost to ensure there is a better working relationship between these two arms of government in the 9th Assembly so that we can serve the people better,” Buhari was quoted as saying in a statement issued by presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu.
