President Muhammadu Buhari says his relationship with the leadership of the current national assembly is not what the country deserves.

Speaking on Tuesday during the breaking of fast with the leadership of the national assembly, the president said he hopes to have a better working relationship with the leadership of the incoming 9th national assembly.

The president had hosted the leadership of the 8th national assembly led by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Among those in attendance were Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president; Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives; and Ahmad Lawan, majority leader of the senate.

“Relations between the executive and the legislature  not the best in the 8th National Assembly,” Buhari said.

“I sincerely hope each one of us will do his utmost to ensure there is a better working relationship between these two arms of government in the 9th assembly so that we can serve the people better.

“Our citizens are faced with challenges of poverty. Your principal task is to cooperate with the executive so that together we can fashion policies that will lift our people out of poverty and out of illiteracy.

“I appeal to the Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members to subordinate all personal interests and ambitions to the imperative of working for the common good of our people.”
