Senate President Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, reportedly left the presidential villa in Abuja in a state of anger on Thursday.

A source told TheCable that the duo had led some top members of the national assembly to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari over the 2018 budget.

The source said trouble started after the security operatives at the villa insisted on screening the lawmakers.

After efforts to make the security guards see reason fell through, making the nation’s number three and four citizens to have left in protest.

The lawmakers, who went said to Aso Rock in a coaster bus, were said to have converged on the residence of Saraki before dispersing.

Earlier on Thursday, the federal executive council approved the draft for 2018 budget.

Speaking with state house correspondents, Udoma Udoma, minister of budget and national planning, had said FEC would liaise with the national assembly on when President Muhammadu Buhari will submit the draft to the lawmakers.

“We are liaising with the national assembly because they have to approve the date for the president to come and address them to submit the budget,” he had said.

“Before now we use to submit in December but now the budget is ready in October so there is a very big difference.”
