Senate President, Bukola Saraki is currently at the Presidential Villa for a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, reports say.

The meeting is reportedly being held in a bid to resolve the disagreement between the Senate and the Presidency.

Buhari is also meeting with House of Representatives Speaker, Yakubu Dogara who is said to have arrived the Villa before Saraki.

The president had, on Wednesday, March 29, set up a committee to resolve the conflict between the executive and the legislature.

The two arms have been at odds with each other following the refusal of some of Buhari's officials to honour invitations by the Senate.

The Senate also expressed its anger at Buhari's failure to remove Ibrahim Magu from the position of acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) despite a rejection from Senators.
