BREAKING: Saraki and Buhari hold closed-door meeting

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Saraki’s visit came a few minutes after the news broke that the 2016 Budget document had been declared missing in the National Assembly.
Dressed in a whiteagbada, the President of the Senate emerged from the meeting which lasted for about 30 minutes to meet State House correspondents who had already gathered in front of the President’s Office.
He exchanged pleasantries with the Director-General of the Department of State Security, Mr. Lawal Daura, who was also in the Presidential Villa to confer with Buhari.
When reporters approached him for an interview, he showed his readiness to answer questions.
However, when asked about the report that the budget was missing, Saraki expressed surprise but declined to comment.
“Ha! ha! ha!”, he exclaimed, before quickly rushing into his waiting car without answering the question.
All efforts made by the reporters to make him speak on the matter did not yield any result as his security detail quickly shut the door and the car drove off.
