The national caucuses of the ruling All Progress Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) his morning paid a joint courtesy call on President Muhammad Buhari at the State House.
The APC chairman, John Oyegun led his party's group while their counterparts from the PDP were led by the party chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.
In his remarks, Makarfi said the PDP prayed for Buhari's recovery from his health challenges, as the party has never wished him ill-health or death.
He pledged the cooperation of the PDP with the Buhari administration on any policy or programme genuine to designed to take the country to greater heights, including the war against corruption.
Makarfi however, tasked the government to be responsible and law abiding by reapsecting all court orders or judicial pronouncements.
Speaking afterwards, Oyegun said it was quite instructive that the two major parties were joined in the courtesy call initiated by the President.
He expressed the hope that the message inherent in such cooperation would permeate the entire country as there were far too many national challenges needed to be surmounted besides politicking.
The two party leaders, on behalf of their delegations, wished Buhari robust health to be able to steer the ship of nation aright.
Buhari thanked the guests for coming to see him, saying it was not a party gathering and showed the improving maturity of party politics in the country.
Democracy needs responsible opposition, he said and asked the delegation to extend his appreciation to their other members who prayed for his recovery from ill-health.
