President Muhammadu Buhari and Saraki
It has been revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday afternoon, held a closed-door meeting with the leadership of the Nigerian Senate.
Premium Times reported that the senators at the meeting, held at the President’s office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, were led by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
After the meeting with the lawmakers, they exited while Mr. Buhari held a personal meeting with Mr. Saraki.
Wednesday’s meeting occurred about a week after the Senate rejected Mr. Buhari’s request to borrow $29.9 billion from external sources.
The lawmakers, across party divide, rejected the application without debate saying it did not come with relevant information such as purpose, means of repayment and so on.
The debt, if approved, will be Nigeria’s largest ever borrowing.
