Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Friday morning stormed the former President Obasanjo’s residence on Presidential Hilltop Estate, Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, to consult with Obasanjo over the 8th Senate and other national issues.

Saraki was elected Senate President unopposed last June 9 by 57 out of the 108 senators in a manner his party deemed a betrayal, treachery and unacceptable.

While the process leading to his election and subdequent swearing – in  lasted at the Senate Chamber, 51 senators mainly APC members, including Senator Ahmed Lawan, were absent.

Since his emercence as Senate President, the former Kwara State governor  has been working to assure his disatisfied party leaders and members of his commitment to APC on one hand, and quality legislation for Nigerians on the other hand.

On Friday morning, Saraki arrived Obasanjo’s home by 9:11 am   and proceeded quickly to the ex – President’s inner chamber for private discussions.

In his entourage are Kawu Baraje, Andy Uba, former Governor of Zamfara state, Senator Sanni Yerima, former Governor of Osun state, Prince  Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Danjuma Goje and  Senator Alaso Adura

Source close to the Obasnjo’s home said the discussion would revolve how Saraki can foster unity in the 8th Senate, make peace with the APC leaders among others issues.
