Saraki, Dogara, Their Entourage Denied Access To Aso Rock

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

It was a serious matter, everybody was angry...

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 told Punch that on getting to Aso Rock gate, 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.

As at the time of reporting, they've all returned to Saraki’s house.
