Executive and Legislature Crisis Unavoidable - Dogara Speaks After Aso Rock Meeting with Buhari


Buhari, Dogara, Saraki 

We reported earlier that President Muhammadu Buhari was locked currently in a closed-door meeting with the Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

While addressing State House reporters after meeting with President Buhari, Speaker Dogara described the crisis between the legislature and the executive as unavoidable.


The speaker who said the crisis was an opportunity for both arms of government to begin afresh, also viewed the crisis as an opportunity to set new boundaries, examine things in a new way.

While commenting on the rift between the executive and the Senate over Magu, Dogara said the legislature and the executive could only be remembered for solving problems, not avoiding them.

"You might look at it as crisis, but I don't look at it as crisis. You know I've always said that as a government, our value will be the problems we have solved. We can't be remembered for avoiding or running away from problems.

"It is only when‎ we provide solutions to some of the things you refer to as crisis and we look at it as opportunities to begin the new that people will now remember us for putting down enduring legacies. But when we run away from everything that appears to be trouble,we will not make it," he said.
