Buhari holds talks with Dogara over Saraki’s trial

06 October 2015, 11:08

Abuja - Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, held a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday night over the ongoing prosecution of Senate President Bukola Saraki, for alleged false asset declaration, Punch reports.

Dogara was said to have sought an audience with President Buhari after the House of Representatives passed a resolution asking the Speaker to meet with the president and senate president in order to resolve the matter.

The move by the House came after the Code of Conduct Bureau arraigned the Senate President before the Code of Conduct Tribunal for alleged false asset declaration in 2003.

Buhari had said that his relationship with Saraki would be determined by the outcome of his trial by the CCT.

However, the two top officials of the government were photographed together on Thursday last week at an event marking the 55th Independence anniversary of the country.

The photograph was said to be intended to portray the two as officials who had no scores to settle.

Buhari and Saraki are said not to have held any official meeting to discuss matters of state since the latter emerged as the President of the 8th Senate on June 9 against the preferred choice of the APC, Senator Ahmad Lawan.
