Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has stated that his recent meetings with President Muhammadu Buhari have nothing to do with the President’s 29.96 billion dollar external borrowing plan rejected by the senate.
He also stated that the rejection was not personal but in the interest of the country.
In a statement on Thursday by the Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Yusuf Olaniyonu, Saraki advised politicians and the media to stop peddling empty speculations.
The Senate President described the comments by some politicians on the loan issue as unfortunate.
It will be recalled that, the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, had warned the Senate President not to join the federal government in ruining the country by supporting Buhari’s request for the foreign loan.
