Senate President Bukola Saraki has pledged the cooperation of the National Assembly with the executive to ensure better administration of the country. Saraki gave the indication when he fielded questions from State House Correspondents after an interactive dinner hosted by President Muhammadu Buhari in honour of principal officers of the National Assembly in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to him, the event is not just a meeting but to honour the invitation of the President to the National Assembly officers to interact with him since he returned from medical vacation. The Senate President added that this was the first time for such interaction with the leadership of the National Assembly.
On the 2018 appropriation bill, Saraki stated that its presentation lay in the hands of the executive but that the Senate will receive it when the executives are ready. He said both the National Assembly and the executive will work together to ensure the passage of the bill in December.
