Abuja - Moves by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara to reconcile President Muhammadu Buhari and the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has failed to yield a positive result, reports Punch.

Dogara had on Monday met with Buhari to find a solution to the frosty relationship between Buhari and Saraki.

During Monday’s meeting, Dogara failed to persuade Buhari to intervene in the trial of Saraki, by the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT. 

Buhari has insisted that Saraki must first sever his relationship with the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu before any meaningful reconciliation between him and the Senate President can start.

Buhari was reported to have told Dogara that he was not comfortable with the arrangement in the Senate.

However, Saraki is said not to be disposed to the idea, arguing that he would not betray his deputy.
