Senator Shehu Sani who reacted to the drama at the National Assembly during the budget presentation yesterday, described the scenario as a theater occupied by obsequious choristers craving for Buhari’s attention.
Shehu Sani who stated that it is ‘absurd’ that lawmakers should behave in such a manner when a major legislative process was ongoing, slammed his colleagues who cheered even when Buhari drank water.
“The Budget Presentation was a theater of the absurd, one side of the opera occupied by the oleaginous and obsequious choristers craving for the attention of President Buhari, cheering even a sip of water, and the other occupied by unruly bands of impudent hecklers and discourteous objectors.”
Recall that we reported that President Buhari was was interrupted intermittently by protesting lawmakers as he listed the achievements of his administration. As he mentioned each achievement, they chorused, ‘No!’. The development forced the All Progressives Congress lawmakers to clash as the opposition lawmakers booed the President.
When he said,
“We have weathered the storms and made progress on every front,” They screamed, “Nooooo! Boooo!”
When he said;
“The economy has recovered well,” the lawmakers screamed again.
Buhari who was displeased with the development was forced to say,
“The world is watching us and we are supposed to be above this.”
