Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki says there is a serene working environment at the upper chamber of Nigeria’s National Assembly.

This is sequel to the removal of Senator Ali Ndume and his immediate replacement with Senator Ahmed Lawal.

The President of the Senate made this disclosure while speaking to State House Correspondents shortly after paying a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

“Everything is calm solid and fine. Things like this do happen in the course of our job and the institution itself is bigger than everybody. I’m sure he (Ndume) and everybody in the Senate will always work for the interest of the institution and Nigeria at large,” he said.

He said all attention is now focused on passing the 2017 budget, in order to move the country forward.

“There is nothing more important for us now than completing the budget process and move the country forward. There is no crisis in the National Assembly whatsoever,” the Senate President emphasised.
