The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, have met with President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
Earlier, they were reports that the two National Assembly leaders were traveling alongside, Deputy Speaker House of Representatives, Yusuf Lasun, and Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, to London to see Mr. President who had been in the United Kingdom since January.
The aides to Dr. Saraki posted the picture of President Buhari with the National Assembly delegations on social media.
And to clear all controversies among Nigerians, the Special Adviser on Media to the Senate President, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said that; “The pictures are authentic. We sent them out from our office some minutes ago”.
“There were only three of them at the meeting with President Buhari. Senate President Saraki, Senate leader, Ahmed Lawan and Speaker Yakubu Dogara”.
President Buhari also confirmed that he met with the National Assembly delegations on twitter.
