Ramadan: President Buhari cancels breaking with Saraki, others

For those who are waiting for President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) to host the breaking of Ramadan fast with embattled  Senate President, Bukola Saraki; PMB has ruled out all possibilities of breaking the fast with Saraki, his deputy, and other leaders of the National Assembly.

It was however scheduled that the President will host the leaders of the two chambers of the National Assembly to Iftar.

The presidential spokesman admitted that Buhari would no longer be able to meet the National Assembly leaders before the end of Ramadan.

He, however, said the development was not the making of anybody.

Shehu said, “You will recall that the President spent most of the days in the Ramadan month outside the country.

“By the time he returned, a schedule had already been made for him on those he would be receiving daily.

“On the day fixed for the National Assembly leaders, most of them had prior engagements and so the event could not hold. It is difficult to begin to adjust the schedule when others fixed for other days have been duly informed. It is not by anybody’s making.”

Those who the President had hosted so far included security chiefs, members of the Federal Executive Council, serving and retired judges, traditional rulers, Christian and Muslim clerics, leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, members of the business community and members of the diplomatic corps among others.
