Budget Drama: Buhari Whisked Away, ‎Saraki, Dogara Abort Speeches

As soon as President Muhammadu Buhari concluded his speech at the joint session of the National Assembly today,, the session turned rowdy again.

The Punch reports that when it was time for the Senate President,  Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives Speaker,  Yakubu Dogara, to present their speeches, the 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.

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

Saraki later led senators out of the House chamber.
