The major protagonists at the heart of the ongoing spats between the executive and legislative arms of government have  on Friday,  found a common ground at Jumat prayers.
This happens as President Muhammadu Buhari was joined for the Jumat prayer at the Presidential Villa, Abuja‎, by the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, among other top government officials.
Also at the prayer were the embattled  Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu; and the Comptroller-General of Customs Service (CGC), Col. Hameed Ali (rtd).
The duo have been having running battles with the Senate lately.
The Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari; and the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, were also in attendance.
After the service, Saraki walked pass the Press Gallery to meet briefly with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo in his office.
He was walking a few metres behind Magu who also took the same route out of the premises.
Magu’s nomination was rejected by the Senate twice based on security report authored by DSS.
Ali had also dragged the Senate to court over the insistence of the Senators that he must appear before them in uniform.
None of the officials spoke with State House correspondents at the end of the prayer.
