The President of the Nigerian Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari over the killings in Plateau State.
Both leaders of the National Assembly arrived at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday shortly before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
Discussions at the meeting focused on ways in which the Legislature and the Executive can work together to resolve the security issues in the country.
The two leaders of the National Assembly also received a briefing from the President on the steps being taken to tackle the crisis.
Briefing reporters after the meeting, Speaker Dogara offered the condolence of the National Assembly to the families of the attack victims and urged Nigerians to live peacefully.
He, however, said security matters cannot be discussed in public but the President informed them about the reorganisation he plans to put in place.
The Speaker stressed that while these are sober moments, the nation cannot continue to tolerate the present insecurity situation.
The Presidency also confirmed the meeting in a tweet.
