Angry Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has come down hard on some unruly federal lawmakers who booed President Muhammadu Buhari at Wednesday’s presentation of by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He described the uncharitable lawmakers as “children who lack home training”.
The governor lampooned the lawmakers on Thursday while speaking with state house correspondents after the Anchor Borrowers Programme Gala at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja.
Declaring that the lawmakers were hell-bent on destroying Nigeria and its hard-earned democracy, the Governor said:
“First of all, two distinct human beings, a father, a gentleman, a man who has the interest of the country at heart, President Muhammadu Buhari, displaced his stuff today (Wednesday), and those who are self-centered, selfish and bent on destroying this country and the democracy have also shown themselves today.
“This is what I said sometimes back that when you have a child that is not well trained by his parents, he constitutes menace to the society and that is exactly what we witnessed today in the National Assembly. The National Assembly is supposed to be made of men and women of character and integrity. We have seen those that constitute such class of human beings and those that constitute menace to the society in the National Assembly today. But above all, I thank God, I thank Mr. President for a wonderful presentation of 2019 budget estimates. We all believe it’s going to take Nigeria to the next level by the special grace of God.”
