The Senate’s action was followed by opposition from some quarters.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed had disclosed on Wednesday that the end of the request has not come as it will be represented with detailed information to the National Assembly.

Speaking with State House correspondents after observing Juma’at prayer and holding meeting with the President along with some lawmakers, Saraki said that the loan request is a work-in-progress.

Asked to speak on the Senate’s relationship with the executive as far as the loan is concern, he said: “We should not look at that as a reflection of the relationship. Don’t let us politicize very important issues. As we said this is work in progress.

On the purpose of his visit to the Presidential Villa, he said: “I came here to pray, I have finished praying and I just had a general felicitation with the President. It didn’t go beyond that.”
