Buhari Refuses To Intervene In Choice Of Senate President, Speaker

President-elect Muhammadu Buhari has declined attempts to drag him into the ongoing intrigues surrounding the election of the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Buhari’s decision not to get involved in the politics of the National Assembly is because he does not want to be seen as an interloper.

He had told leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who have approached him  to intervene in intrigues, that he was ready to work with whoever is elected as the Senate President as well as the Speaker.

He had told the leaders that he does not want people to see him as dictator because that was the tag his opponents have put on him since he started bidding for the Presidency in 2003
