Aggrieved lawmakers turn down invitation to break Ramadan fast with President Buhari
Aggrieved members of the National Assembly have allegedly turned
down an invitation by President Buhari to join him in breaking his
Ramadan fast at the presidential villa in Abuja. According to some
sources in the presidency, the lawmakers are angry with the presidency
over the recent row between the two arms of government. They are against
moves by the presidency to try Senate President Bukola Saraki and
his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, on allegations of forgery of the Senate
Standing Orders during the senate election in June last year.
President Buhari on Monday
hosted service Chiefs to the Ramadan dinner while he hosted members of
the Federal Executive Council yesterday. He was billed to host members
of the National Assembly today June 22nd.
