President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Abuja met behind closed doors with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Messrs. Dogara and Tambuwal, who came into the presidential villa together in the Speaker’s car, refused to comment on the outcome of their meeting with the president.

Mr. Tambuwal, who avoided questions from journalists, however, dismissed the assertion that the meeting discussed the political misunderstanding between the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and the APC national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun.

He said “no, I don’t know about that”.

The meeting, which took place in the president’s office, lasted for about 43 minutes.

There are speculation the meeting was about the wrangling between Mr. Dogara and the house’s former appropriation committee chairman, Abdulmumin Jibrin.

Mr. Jibrin has accused the house speaker of budget fraud, an allegation Mr. Dogara denies.

    Jibrin is not going on any suspension; else, dust would hit the fan, or fan go hit the dust pile, whichever comes first.

    What would be the purpose of the undisclosed meeting than how to kill the fraud perpetrated by Dogara in the house. Abi what should be the reason for regular visit of an alleged fraudster and the President that claim to hate corruption. If what they discuss is clean, why is it difficult to mention to Nigerians atleast from a president that his second name is sincerity. They are only hiding under one finger, nothing carefully concealed that will not come to the open.
