President Muhammadu Buhari met with Senate delegation over the face-off between the Senate and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris but privy information revealed that Buhari did not make any commitment.
“Buhari only promised them that he would get back to them on the matter.The President made it clear to them that he is committed to a cordial relationship between the Legislature and Executive arms of government.
“He said he would not encourage anything that would cause friction between the arms of government, especially as the general elections approach.”
“But on their specific demand on the IG, the President did not make any immediate commitment. He only told them that he would revert to them in due course.”
Recall that the Senate last week Wednesday set up a nine-member committee, to meet the President over an allegation that the Inspector General of Police was trying to implicate the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki.
Members of the delegation were led to the meeting that held behind closed doors inside the President’s office on Wednesday by the Senate Leader, Ahmad Lawan.Other members of the team include the Chief Whip, Olusola Adeyeye; Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio; Danjuma Goje; Sam Anyanwu; Aliyu Wammako; Fatima Raji-Rasaki; and Oluremi Tinubu.
