The Senate, announced that it has accepted the peace move by President Muhammadu Buhari to end the clashes between both arms of government  ( Executive and Legislative )

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Sabi Abdullahi, in a chat with journalists on Thursday, said the National Assembly welcomed the initiative “with open arms.”

Buhari had on Wednesday made the move aimed at improving the relationship between the two arms of government, which has gone sour lately.

At the meeting of the Federal Executive Council, which he presided over, the President was said to have set up a cabinet committee that would proffer a solution to the crisis.

Abdullahi, in his reaction, said, “We have heard about the initiative by President Muhammadu Buhari in setting up a Presidential Committee on Executive-Legislature Relations to be headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

“It is a good step in the right direction. The Senate, in particular, and the National Assembly in general, is ready to cooperate with the group and work with them to resolve all grey areas standing on the way of the smooth working relationship needed to deepen our fledgling democracy and ensure good governance for the benefits of Nigerians.”

The Senate’s spokesman, however, pointed out that the decision by the upper chamber of the National Assembly to reject the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, should not be seen as the cause of the rift.

The lawmakers had also suspended their consideration of Buhari’s request for the approval of Resident Electoral Commissioners by two weeks in protest against his retention of Magu as acting Chairman of the EFCC.

He said, “On the RECs, all the Senate said was that if we have passed some resolutions and they were rubbished, why are we passing another? The Senate simply asked the President of the Senate to liaise with the President of the country to know what had happened to the passed resolution.”
