2019 Budget Presentation: Senator Calls For The Resignation Of Saraki And Dogara

Godswill Akpabio, senator representing Akwa Ibom north-west senatorial district, has asked Senate President Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogora, speaker of the House of Representatives, to resign.

Speaking to reporters after President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2019 budget, the lawmaker said the two presiding officers have become minority leaders.

According to him, the inability of Saraki and Dogara to control the lawmakers shows they were undeserving of their positions.

When asked to comment on the inability of Saraki and Dogara to control the lawmakers who disrupted President Buhari’s speech, Akpabio said: “Yes, they couldn’t talk today because they are minority leaders. They are not even supposed to talk in the first place.
“They should therefore do the needful and resign honourably or face being booted out of office,” he said.

247NNU 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.
