Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, have again visited acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House presidential villa for the second time in three days.

The two National Assembly leaders were at the Villa on Tuesday to see Mr. Osinbajo.

Thursday’s meeting lasted for over three hours.

Mr. Saraki had told reporters on Tuesday that their visit was in respect of the 2017 budget estimates which is being considered by the Assembly.

After emerging from the office of the acting president on Thursday, Mr. Saraki said their visit was in respect of the presence of Nigerian military in the Gambia.

“The acting president is briefing us on our troop’s trip to Gambia and what the situation is, and that the Navy and the Air Force will be coming back, and that it is likely some troops will be left behind,” he said.

Messrs. Saraki and Dogara were accompanied to the meeting by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.

President Muhammadu Buhari is on vacation in London, United Kingdom. He is expected to return on February 10.

    Buhari will return to Nigeria on the 10th of feb not on the 6TH again.

    • Otile

      Why 10th again?

      • Senator D

        Bubu has kicked the bucket… Never oppress the widow, orphan or poor in the land for God HIMSELF will plead their cause and stand with you in judgement… I wonder which lawyer can defend you when God stands against you in judgement…I have been maligned ever since I said Bubu will go the way of Sanni Abacha who made us go through hell. I will never forget the thick air of anger, fear, suspicion and hate in the air during General Sanni Abacha’s era… Whilst him and his cronies looted Nigeria dry… Now Bubu wants to bring back those days of fear, mistrust, anger and hate whilst his family members, the SFG, CoS (Kyari), Amaechi, Fashola and so on loot us by forex round tripping and deception…

      that is the type of journalist we have in our beloved nation. no more flair in writing, their write-ups full of error.

  • tunde008

    God’s punishment awaits all those leaders who destroyed our hospitals and clinics and run abroad to treat headache.

    • muazu wali

      You are jealous…Sorry for you. Work harder and attain a position not even president where these previledges are freely granted to even CEOs and Judges.

  • Senator D

    I have said over and over that, “Buhari shall receive the Sanni Abacha Curse”… Hate me if you like. Any Leader who makes the widow, orphan and poor to cry to Heaven will receive the Abacha treatment from divinity… Am here watching and waiting for 10th of February or is it 6th? These clowns keeps changing the date of returning the cadaver of our dearly beloved Bubu….

    • muazu wali

      Why should any one abuse someone wishing another person evil, a President and C-C of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. You should curse APC who presented him as their candidate for the office of President. Your wishes, abuses whatever is a waste of your breath and an additional agony to your person.

  • Senator D

    May the “Sanni Abacha” Curse never leave Aso Rock.. May it continually visit every occupant of the Presidential Villa who oppresses the poor, the weak, the needy, widows and orphans…Amen!

  • Senator D

    Got a call from a reliable military source yesterday evening telling me that the C-in-C has kaput… I asked him if he was sure and he said 100%… And I asked him why he sounded happy and he said there’s so much anger within the ranks and files of the Nigerian army over the way General Brutal Turkur (sorry I mean Gen. Buratai Turkur) is running the army like a private estate. I was shocked. So many other things he told me which I cannot write here…

    So pitiful that over the years, this woman is yet been spoonfed, we knew unholy ways she became board member, commissioner and ambassador, we wouldn’t expect less than such hypocritical clamour from her, it is certain that they all cries in vain, no abduction can be successful on SPBK issue
