Nigerians condemn lawmakers’ conduct as Buhari presents 2019 budget

Nigerians condemn lawmakers’ conduct as Buhari presents 2019 budget

 

 

 

Nigerians on Twitter have condemned the behaviour of lawmakers during the joint session of the National Assembly, where President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2019 budget on Wednesday.

At different times during the budget presentation, the lawmakers booed Buhari and even shouted, “It’s a lie” when he made certain claims.

A section of the lawmakers had treated Buhari to a Rock Star welcome, with shouts of ‘Sai Baba,’ a form of greeting adopted by the President’s admirers.

The same shout of Sai Baba and clapping prevented the leaders of the National Assembly — Senate President Bukola Saraki and House Speaker Yakubu Dogara — from responding to the President’s speech.

The National Assembly leaders merely exchanged handshakes with the President and ended the meeting.

However, while some Twitter users felt that the behaviour of the lawmakers was uncalled for, others felt it showed the ‘beauty’ of democratic system.

If the Pro-Buhari and the Anti-Buhari lawmakers don’t end this #Budget2019 session with slaps, throwing of chairs, shoes and other tout-like displays, they must return their December allowances. Shebi fighting and shouting is what we are paying them for. #SMH pic.twitter.com/IRdAI3zD7P

The President of Nigeria is being booed on live TV by members of the National Assembly. This is a new low & I hope he sees beyond the lies his aides feed him daily, that he has failed all Nigerians & we want him out. Buhari, this is your last Christmas in office.#Budget2019

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone! viagra 100mg
