The presidency has urged the National Assembly to be on the same page with President Muhammadu Buhari, saying Nigerians are not interested in drama but good governance.

Senior Special Assistant to the president on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu stated this while addressing newsmen at the State House, Abuja.

The relationship between the presidency and the national assembly has become stormy over the defection of lawmakers elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress to the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and the alleged move to remove the senate president, Bukola Saraki.

He also said the outcome of last Saturday's by-elections in Bauchi,Katsina and Kogi States have placed President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo in good stead to win next year's election.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) won the by- elections in Bauchi south, Katsina North senatorial district and a federal constituency in Kogi state.

He said election after election, Nigerians are reposing confidence on President Buhari and the Vice President.

Shehu, while thanking Nigerians for voting for the APC, said the victory of the party was a clear message that what Nigerians are interested in was good governance.
