Saraki was accompanied to the Villa by the chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Danjuma Goje.
Addressing State House correspondents later, the Senate President said Buhari's $29.9 billion foreign loan request which the Senate turned down on Tuesday was still a work in process.
The upper legislative chamber had cited "technical grounds" rejecting President Muhammadu Buhari's request seeking approval for the loan.
The Senate president, however, cautioned Nigerians against politicising what he called "very important issues".
Saraki also clarified that the rejection of the loan request was not a reflection of the relationship between the executive and the legislature.
He stated: "I came here to pray. I have finished praying and I just had a general felicitation with the president. It did not go beyond that.
"We should not look at that (the loan request) as a reflection of the relationship between the Executive and the Legislature.
"Don't let us politicise very important issues. As we said, this is work in progress."
