President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, set up a committee, whose objective is to resolve the perennial rift between the executive and the legislature.

The committee will be chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Other members of the committee are all ministers who were at one time federal legislators, as well as the Senior Special Assistants to the President on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang (Senate) and Samaila Kawu (House of Representatives).

This was revealed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who briefed State House Correspondents on the development.

“The executive is also concerned that the relationship between the two arms of government is not as smooth as it is supposed to be.

“In any democracy, it is a continuous struggle for balancing between the executive and the legislature because each of them is a creature of the law.

“Just today (Wednesday) at the Federal Executive Council meeting, the issue was discussed and a committee is already working on ensuring that we resolve all these outstanding issues,” the Minister said.

The Senate had rejected Buhari’s nomination of Ibrahim Magu as substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) twice.

It had also summoned the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Colonel Hameed Ali to appear before it.

If buhari was educated,he would have known that u can never succeed as a president with having ur person as d senate President, he allowed saraki to sp and he is here setting committee after another,the only thing that will make saraki to support him is for them to drop allbthe charges against him.
