Buhari meets with ex-National Assembly leaders

19 July 2016, 11:16

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with some ex- leaders of the National Assembly, Nation reports.

Former Senate Presidents David Mark and Ken Nnamani, former House of Representatives Speaker Aminu Bello Masari (now Katsina State governor) and Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate) Senator Ita Enang were seen at the Presidential Villa.

The agenda of the meetings were unknown, but they may not be unconnected with the strained relationship between the Presidency and the Senate leadership.

Mark, who was appointed to lead a team of peace makers at last week’s executive session of the Senate, came out after about 30 minutes in the President’s office.

His visit to the Villa was the first since he stepped down as Senate President last year.

No official statement was issued on the meetings.

It was also gathered that Mark sought Buhari’s intervention on the continued killings in Benue State.

Scores were recently killed when gunmen invaded Logo, Turan, Mbagber, Yonov, Varser, Anyin and Tombo and in Logo and Ukum LGAs of the state despite assurances of government intervention according to Daily Trust.

Mark had in a statement last Wednesday by his media aide Paul Mumeh, said: “Enough of the bloodbath, enough of this massacre. This war is senseless and needless...It is time the federal government stepped in to salvage this situation. It has become too worrisome and truly intolerable.”
