What we discussed with Buhari in London– Dogara

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara on Thursday disclosed that the leadership of the National Assembly discussed national issues with President Muhammadu Buhari during their meeting which held in London on Wednesday.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki had led leadership of the National Assembly to London on a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari who is receiving medical attention there.

The lawmakers arrived at the Abuja House on Wednesday a few minutes before 8pm – Nigerian time.

Dogara on Thursday in a tweet via his verified official twitter handle@YakubDogara said the delegation discussed national issues with the President in the United Kingdom.

His Special Adviser Media & Public Affairs Turaki Hassan further quoted Dogara as saying “President Buhari is as fit as a fiddle and cracked jokes in his usual manner.

“President is as fit as a fiddle; after burning national issues, it was all PMB’s vintage humorous jokes. I’m so elated he is as fit as a fiddle.”

Saraki and Dogara had last week announced that they separately spoke on telephone with Buhari.

They made the London trip ahead of next Tuesday’s resumption of plenary to discuss issues the President has interest in as well as any input he might have.

The meeting also deliberated on other matters of mutual interest between the Executive and the Legislature.

The two leaders used the opportunity to personally pray for President Buhari and wished him quick return to Nigeria.

Recall that last week, the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande also paid Buhari a visit.
