Buhari did not apologise to the Senate !!!.
On Friday, the Senior Special Assistant to the president on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang was reported to have issued an apology to the Senate on behalf of the Presidency for the statement made by Okoi Obono-Obla, a Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Prosecution.
Okoi had on Thursday told the Senate that it had no power to summon the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami for questioning over the forgery case which has so far rocked the legislative arm of government.
Speaking on Friday, Enang had called a press conference to apologise for Okoi’s conduct at the Senate while he represented Malami on Thursday.
Malami is reported to be currently out of the country.
At the press conference, Enang had said, “I am a presidential liaison officer and I apologize for the inability of the Attorney-General to appear before the Senate when he was invited.”
“He received a letter of invitation after he had already planned an official trip.”
Enang’s comments were reported in some quarters as an apology from the Presidency to the Senate.
However, while speaking to Premium Times, Enang said his apology was a personal declaration and it was in no way on behalf of the Presidency.
He revealed that he apologised to the senate because he did not want any bad blood to fester between the Senate and the Presidency.
He said, “I apologise for his comments. From what I heard, he was not complimentary to the senate.”
“We didn’t need to cause more trouble between the presidency and the Senate.”
“The president has not apologised. It is me that is apologising for the inappropriate action of the person representing the Attorney-General.”’ – This is what happened
