Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode, has revealed what President Muhammadu Buhari planned to do to lawmaker that booed him during the budget presentation at National Assembly some days ago.
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.
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.”
NIYI DARAM 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.
Efforts by Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker, Yakubu Dogara to calm the lawmakers also proved abortive.
