President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, behind closed doors.

The meeting, which held inside the president’s, office, took place hours after Mr Buhari returned from his home town, Daura, in Katsina state.

After the meeting, Mr Saraki told State House correspondents that they were in the Villa on the invitation of Mr. Buhari.

He said the president briefed them on his trip to the United States last week where he met with President Donald Trump.

He also said Mr Buhari spoke to them about the 2018 budget.

The two chambers of the National Assembly are yet to pass the 2018 budget estimates six months after it was presented to them by the president.

The Assembly has said that the delay in the passage of the budget was due to the failure of the heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies to appear before the Assembly and defend their estimates.

“We also talked on the issue of concerns to us, the invasion of the National Assembly, which he showed great concern and said action will be taken to investigate that,” Mr Saraki said.

Thugs invaded the Senate chamber recently and took away the mace, the symbol of authority.

Mr Saraki told reporters that Mr Buhari saw the invasion as an embarrassment to the country.
