ABUJA – Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, were among principal officers of the National Assembly who were on Thursday night denied access to the Aso Rock Presidential Villa for a dinner with President Muhammadu Buhari.
It was gathered that the lawmakers who were conveyed by a coastal bus refused to alight for a security screening at the Pilot Gate of the Presidential Villa.
Saraki and Dogara led the legislators to the dinner scheduled for 8:30pm.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, told our correspondent on the telephone that he would find out what happened.
Sundiata Post made effort to reach Alhaji Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki’s media adviser but he did respond to enquiry.
