Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday met with leaders of the National Assembly and some Governors.
At the closed door meeting held at the Presidential Villa were Dr. Bukola Saraki, Honourable Yakubu Dogara, the Chairman of the Governors Forum, Abdullaziz Yari, the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha and the governors of Ogun, and Osun States.
Details of the meeting were not disclosed to journalists but feelers have it that the meeting may be in connection with 30 billion dollar loan request made by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The meeting started at about 3:00p.m. local time and ended at about 5:00p.m.
After the meeting, the Senate President told reporters that the meeting was held to discuss issues that would move the nation forward.
“All is for good governance, inclusion and great collaboration with all arms.
“The states are here, the National Assembly executive is here to just come up with ideas about how to make things work even better,” Dr. Saraki told reporters.
The meeting came a day after Mr Femi Addesina, a spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari, told Channels Television that the president would be re-presenting the returned loan request to the National Assembly with the required details.
The Senate had returned the loan approval request to the executive arm of government, demanding for more details to be provided. (Channels TV)
