Budget Presentation Goes Rowdy as Buhari is Whisked Away, ‎Saraki, Dogara Abort Speeches

The appearance of President Muhammadu Buhari at the National Assembly for the budget presentation today ended in rowdiness.

As soon as Buhari concluded his speech, the session turned rowdy again. It was time for Saraki and Dogara to present their speeches but while APC lawmakers chanted ‘four more years,’ their PDP counterparts screamed, ‘no more years.’

After more than 10 minutes into the drama, the Presidential Guards Brigade band suddenly started to play the National Anthem, even while Buhari was still seated.

The anthem marked the end of the ceremony, with Saraki and Dogara yet to present their speeches.

Security operatives whisked the President out of the chamber leaving the lawmakers behind.

Saraki later led senators out of the House chamber.
