Security Screening: Saraki, Dogara, Others Turn Back From Aso Rock


Senate President Bukola Saraki, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and some principal officers of the National Assembly on Thursday night angrily turned back from Aso Rock.

They were at the villa to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over the 2018 appropriation bill.
It was gathered that the lawmakers met at Saraki ’s house and left for the villa in a white coaster bus.
An aide of one of the lawmakers was reported to have told a Punch correspondent that on getting to Aso Rock, the Chief Security Officer to the President insisted on a security search on each of the 20 lawmakers. This was said to have miffed the legislators who insisted that there was no need for a personal screening.
It was further learnt that the matter could not be resolved, leading to the lawmakers turning back.
Presently, they are all in Saraki ’s house. They have been receiving calls from the Presidency to return.
The CSO to the President and other Presidency officials were said to have visited Saraki ’s house to apologise. However, most of the principal officers had dispersed from the Senate President ’s house.
