Saraki meets with Buhari in Aso Rock

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday evening honoured President Muhammadu Buhari’s invitation, to break fast with him at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

During Ramadan, the presidency usually  invites dignitaries to break fast with Buhari. They invited Bukola Saraki this time.

On Monday, the president hosted members of his cabinet and it was the turn of federal lawmakers on Tuesday.

Buhari’s Special Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmaad, confirmed Saraki’s presence and tweeted pictures along with the caption: “President @MBuhari host leadership of the National Assembly to break #Ramadan fast this evening at the State House, Abuja.”

The president’s invitation to the Senate President is coming at a time Saraki is having a running battle with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The agency has reportedly seized some of Saraki’s choice properties in Lagos State.
