President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to take appropriate action in the rift between Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and inspector-general of police, Ibrahim Idris.
Daily Trust reports that the president’s position was revealed by the Senate leader, Ahmad Lawan, who led the delegation to meet with him.

Lawan said the president listened to their talk and promised to take appropriate action.
Asked what the issue between Saraki and Idris was, the Senate said it was about politics. He said: "Of course, it is. You don’t need to be told, it is surely politics."
