Abuja - Members of the National Assembly have reportedly shunned a dinner with President Muhammadu Buhari, reports The Cable.
The lawmakers were said to be angry with Buhari over the criminal conspiracy and forgery charges brought against the leadership of the Senate by the federal government.
In the build up to the dinner, the caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the red chamber had announced that they would no longer support the efforts and agenda of Buhari, as reported by News 24.
The Senate had bitterly complained that the Executive arm of government was in cahoot with other forces to ensure that the Senate President Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu, his deputy are silenced or imprisoned.
