Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation has said President Muhammadu Buhari has sworn to deal with Lawmakers that booed him during the 2019 budget presentation to the joint session of the National Assembly.
Fani-Kayode said an insider at the Presidency told him that Buhari in Aso Rock swore to deal with lawmakers that ‘booed’ him
The former minister said this in a series of tweets on Saturday.
Kaakaki news reports that President Buhari was booed by lawmakers during budget presentation.
According to him, the President allegedly swore in Aso-rock that he will ‘show lawmakers who is in charge’, also blaming the Senate president, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Reps, Yakubu Dogara for the embarrassment.
He wrote; “A reliable source at the Presidency told me that when Buhari/Jubril got back to the Villa after being booed at the National Assembly he sat down in silence for almost one hour after which he pointed to the sky with his right finger and, in deep rage, swore that “WHEN” he comes back in 2019 he will “teach the legislators the lesson of their lives” and “show them who is in charge”.
“He blamed Saraki and Dogara for the whole episode and mentioned the names of APC legislators who he claimed were involved in the wicked and evil conspiracy to disgrace me.”
While some sang solidarity songs, other shouted ‘lies’ after every of Mr. Buhari’s claims.
Efforts by Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker, Yakubu Dogara to calm the lawmakers also proved abortive.
