Buhari urges Saraki to work with him

20 December 2016, 08:54

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Senate President, Bukola Saraki to work together with him to move the country forward.

In the statement to congratulate the Senate President on his 54th birthday, Buhari described Saraki as one of the most influential politicians in the country.

Buhari in the statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu on Monday, noted that the Senate President has successfully kept the memory of his late father alive by identifying with the grassroots in his home state.

While wishing Saraki many more years, Buhari called on the National Assembly to collaborate with the presidency and other arms of government.

According to the President, despite the principle of separation of powers, both arms of government should be united in the promotion of the common good of the people.

He noted that whatever differences that may occasionally arise between the two branches of government should not be allowed to compromise their common goals of promoting the greater progress and development of Nigeria.
