President Muhammadu Buhari has tendered an apology to members of the national assembly over a row with security personnel earlier on Thursday.

Led by Senate President Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, the legislators went to the presidential villa for a meeting with Buhari.

TheCable gathered that the meeting was about the 2018 budget.

However, they reportedly left the villa in anger after security operatives insisted on screening them.

Buhari later reached out to them but majority of the lawmakers had left the residence of Saraki where they converged after the embarrassing encounter.

Saraki and Dogara returned to Aso Rock and were hosted to a dinner. Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president; Ita Enang and Sulaiman Kawu, presidential aides, attended the dinner.

TheCable learnt that Buhari instructed Kyari to collect the names of all the principal officers of both chambers of the national assembly and ensure tags are issued to them ahead of the meeting rescheduled to Tuesday.

Saraki confirmed to state house correspondents that the issue had been resolved.
