THE president of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, say there is no disagreement between them over President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to endorse the Electoral Act in which the National Assembly proposed changes in the election sequence.
Saraki and Dogara on Saturday urged the public to disregard report of misunderstanding between them, declaring that they were united on the amendment of the Electoral Act.
“There is no disagreement between the two chambers as well as their presiding officers. The leadership of the two chambers constantly hold discussions and are in agreement on what to do, how to do it, when to do it and why it must be done,” they said.
They said the issue at stake is not personal, rather, they said it is about deepening democracy.
“It is about improving our democracy, and the National Assembly is on firm constitutional and legal grounds to amend the law as well as take decisions in the manner they have been responding.”
They said that the insinuation contained in the report was meant to cause division in the federal legislature.
