The senate president urged Nigerians not to read politics into the issue. He also warns that the development should not be viewed as a reflection of the relationship between the Executive and the Legislature.
“I came here to pray. I have finished praying and I just had a general felicitation with the President. It did not go beyond that,” said Saraki.
