The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, yesterday vowed that the Upper Chamber would not reverse its rejection of President Muhammadu Buhari’s $29.9 billion loan request.
He also said that he never had any discussion on the controversial loan request with Buhari in his (Saraki’s) recent visits to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
This was as he also cautioned politicians and the media to stop peddling empty speculations about his recent visits to the Presidential Villa and linking such visits to Buhari’s loan request.
Saraki, in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, stated that in all his recent meetings with President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the issue of the proposed loan was never mentioned, let alone discussing it.
He described as unfortunate, the comments by some politicians on the loan request by the president without any factual basis, lamenting that the commentaries on the matter were rather trivializing such critical national issue as if it were a personal affair.
According to him, the National Assembly has taken a position on the matter.
He said that the National Assembly, as the people’s parliament, had vowed to always place national interest above parochial considerations while considering any issue on the floor of both chambers.
Saraki further argued that his visits to the Presidency were normal because the heads of the executive arm and the parliament need to be in constant consultations to enable them exchange ideas that would facilitate good governance in the country.

He said: “Like I once told the media, these politically- motivated commentaries are trivialising a serious national issue and presenting it as if it is a personal matter that can be decided at meetings between Saraki and President Buhari.
“The National Assembly which I head as Senate President has taken a position on the issue as required of it by the laws of the land and legislative conventions.
“At every point, the present National Assembly will make decisions based on national interest and we have vowed that we will always act in the interest of our people.
That is why despite the fact that members belong to different parties, when national issues come to the floor, we forget about party affiliations and act as Nigerians elected to protect the interest of Nigeria.
“A visit to the Presidency by the Senate President is a normal thing because we need to consult, discuss, exchange ideas and make suggestions to each other from time to time.
More importantly, at this time, when the nation is facing economic crisis, there is need for frequent engagements by the Presidency and the National Assembly.”
