PDP House of Reps Member Reveals Why Buhari Was Jeered At
Why President Buhari Was Booed Yesterday- Kingsley Chinda
The Rivers state representative attributed the occurrence to the fact that the lawmakers were displeased with the president’s performance so far.
Premium Times reports that Chinda disclosed that not only members of the PDP were displeased but also members from the president’s party, APC.
“The presidency has not been fair to Nigerians when it comes to budget and most often they use that to blame the legislature. One example is, when it comes to capital releases, you will find out that they have performed very poorly.
“Today he told Nigerians that they have about N800 billion so far for capital expenditures as against N6.4 trillion, if you calculate that, it will give you about 16 per cent. What it means is that they have achieved just 16 per cent release of capital expenditures. The economy cannot move with that kind of practice.
“The protest was not planned, it was spontaneous. This morning, people just felt there was a need for it. “It is not just about PDP lawmakers, some of the APC lawmakers felt that because they belonged to the same political party with the president, it will not be tidy for them to come to the open. They are actually not happy with what is going on in the system,” the lawmaker said.
