Buhari Resists Fresh Moves to Meet With Saraki

President Muhammadu Buhari has ignored fresh moves by the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, to formally meet with him.

Reports say Saraki had at different times reached out to people to help him persuade Buhari to grant him audience.

“Their encounter during the APC National Executive Council meeting, when they shook hands, was the first meeting between President Buhari and Saraki since he emerged as the President of the Senate," an official says.

“We are aware that Saraki has been going about begging people to assist him to plead with the President to meet with him. That was one of the reasons why he visited former President Obasanjo.

Also, an APC chieftain said Buhari has refused to meet with Saraki.

"If you read in-between the line his speech during our last NEC meeting, he reminded people who joined the party after it was formed not to rubbish the sacrifices made by party leaders.

“It was not for the fun of it that the President took time to go down the memory lane to trace the genesis of the APC.

“Although the President said he was prepared to work with anybody who emerged as leader in the National Assembly, he did not envisage a scenario where Saraki would emerge as the Senate President and Ike Ekweremadu, a member of the PDP, would emerge as the deputy president of the Senate.”

“Not until the governors, who were mandated by the NEC to resolve the matter in the National Assembly, bring the matter under control.”
