Despite the perceived crisis between the executive and legislative arms of government, the leadership of the National Assembly says its relationship with the presidency is cordial.
 
President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara met separately on Monday with President Muhammadu Buhari at the state house Abuja.
 
In separate interviews, the two leaders were quick to play down the importance of the meetings with the president, describing them as routine.

Reacting to the perceived row, two lawyers based in Lagos, Mr. Monday Ubani and Mr.Vincent Nwana argued that the two arms of government should bury their ego and consider the public interest.
