Abuja - In a bid to ensure a smooth sail for his ministerial nominees, President Muhammadu Buhari has started reaching out to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Senate, reports Punch.

The lobby came to the fore when Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, addressed a joint press conference on Tuesday in company with Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.
