Lawmakers Who Booed Buhari Behaved Like Animals – Sagay
Lagos – Professor Itse Sagay SAN, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), on Wednesday said senators and members of the House of Representatives, who booed President Muhammadu Buhari when he presented the estimates of the 2019 budget to a joint session of the National Assembly in Abuja behaved like animals.
Speaking in an interview with INDEPENDENT, Sagay said the action of the lawmakers did not come to him as a surprise as they only demonstrated their true conduct to the Nigerians and the international community.
“The actions of the lawmakers who booed the President was an animal behavior. Harry Belafonte used to sing one song. He said ‘A donkey will sometimes bray, let him bray; let him bray’. That is my response to the actions of the lawmakers. We should allow their donkeys bray.
“They behave like animals. We should just tolerate them at their low level of humanity and conduct. You saw what the President told them. He said they are expected to be above this because the whole world is watching them.
“I think the President is wrong because they are not above what they did. That is their level and they are demonstrating it to the world. So I am not surprised at all,” he said.
