Why Senators, Reps disrupted Buhari 2019 budget presentation – Onyeama

By - - [ ]

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday caused a rowdy session during the presentation of the 2019 budget at the National Assembly.


DAILY POST had reported that lawmakers booed the President as he highlighted some of the successes so far recorded by his administration.

The actions of the lawmaker made the President to remind the aggrieved lawmakers that, “The world is watching us and we are supposed to be above this.”


While some sang solidarity songs, other shouted ‘lies’ after every of Mr Buhari’s claims.

The Deputy Minority Leader, Mr Chukwuka Onyema, speaking to journalists after the rowdy session, with the PDP caucus in the House, condemned some claims by Buhari in the appropriation bill.

Onyeama said the claims by the administration of stepping up citizens’ security was “partly-punctured” by a report issued by the Amnesty International this week, stating that more than 3, 600 killings since 2016, with 310 attacks recorded between January 2016 and October 2018, 57 per cent of which took place in 2018 alone.


He also accused the government of lack of vision in managing the economy, adding that the daily increasing number of unemployed or sacked Nigerians attested to the APC administration’s failure.

On why lawmakers disrupted President’s speech, Onyeama reading from a written speech entitled, ‘2019 Budget: Yet Another Hollow Ritual,’ said, “Again, the Buhari administration has tabled another multi-trillion naira budget and, again, this hollow ritual it began in 2015 may soon be followed, as usual, with excuses for non-performance.

“Again too, as it has always done, the APC government known for its unique ideology of ‘blame-ology’ will start apportioning of blames to all else, except itself.

“For a government that came into power promising utopia, consistently dismal implementation of the national budget betrays its half-hearted, insensitivity to the plight of the Nigerian people who long for genuine progress and development that will positively impact their lives.

“Yet since 2015, it has been an unfortunate harvest of lies, blames and propaganda while its over hyped campaign promises of security, economic growth and war against corruption have remained a mirage.”
