President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met with Senate President, Bukola Saraki at the Presidential Villa for the third time in a week.
Both leaders had met last week Friday as well as on Wednesday after the President met with members of the South East Caucus in the Senate led by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and Eyinnaya Abaribe.
Recall that the Senate had recently rejected Buahri’s $29.9bn loan request due to its “emptiness”.
The upper chamber had also rejected the 2017 to 2019 Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) forwarded by President Buhari for approval.
The Senate President, at the end of last week Friday’s meeting, had told State House correspondents that the issue of the $29.9 billion loan was work in progress.
