According to him, what have been going are just normal functions of the two arms of government.

Saraki’s words were echoed by his special assistant on new media, Bamikole Omisore, who also tweeted on Monday that there was no fight between the Nigerian Senate and Presidency Muhammadu Buhari-led executive arm.

We recalls that the Senate recently suspended the important screening of Regional Electoral Commissioners (RECs) in protest against President Buhari’s refusal to sack Ibrahim Magu as acting Economic and Financial Crimes Commission chairman after he was rejected twice by the upper house.
