Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has attacked lawmakers who booed President Muhammadu Buhari during the presentation of the 2019 budget on Wednesday.
Buhari appeared before a joint session of the National Assembly to present the 2019 budget proposal but was booed by some lawmakers.
It got to a point that the number 1 citizen had to caution the lawmakers, saying such acts was below them and the world was watching.
Gov.Bello has now described those who booed the president as “children who lack home training”.
The governor said this on Thursday while speaking with state house correspondents after the Anchor Borrowers Programme Gala at the state house conference center in Abuja.
Bello said the lawmaker are bent on destroying the country and its democracy.
“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 displayed 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,” he said.
“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.
“National Assembly is suppose 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.”
