2019 Budget Presentation: PDP Lawmakers’ Action Irresponsible - APC

We condemn in strong terms the action by lawmakers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the presentation of the 2019 National Budget by President Mohammadu Buhari on Wednesday.

The PDP should be aware that the disgraceful conduct and actions of its legislative caucus has succeeded in eroding the remnant of the public’s respect, (if any) that the Party has in the eyes of any respectable Nigerian. The PDP has further confirmed its unsavoury image in the eyes of well meaning Nigerians, that the party is largely populated by self-serving and unpatriotic members, whose sole aim in politics is to promote their self interests at the expense of the country’s interests.

By law, respect for the office of the president or head of government in any clime is not a matter of choice but a civic obligation sanctioned by laws. Being an opposition party or critic is no licence for such wayward conduct by the PDP legislative caucus; most especially against the president of the country.

Not even the admonition of President to the PDP lawmakers that “You are on international TV, comport yourselves. The world is watching us; we should be above this,” failed to calm the unruly PDP elements.

Nigerians are not oblivious of the actions and inactions of the National Assembly presiding officers, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara while the President was being heckled by the PDP legislative caucus. Their failure to rein in their unruly PDP colleagues, while their show of shame lasted clearly confirmed that the PDP members’ action was premeditated and orchestrated to embarrass the President.

When the APC was in opposition, Nigerians will recall statements by the PDP government that the immediate-past President Goodluck Jonathan did not personally present the national budget to the National Assembly based on fears that he will be heckled and embarrassed by the opposition federal lawmakers at the time. The fears turned out to be misplaced as that never happened when Jonathan eventually presented the national budget. Such shameful and undignified practice has no place in our progressive ideology.

The PDP lawmakers and their conniving leaders have a lot of questions to answer. First, we wonder why they cannot stomach the evident and verifiable achievements of the APC-led Government in the areas of power, rail and road infrastructure, social intervention programmes as contained in the proposed budget.

The APC commends President Muhammadu Buhari for remaining calm and focused during the budget presentation despite the provocation from PDP lawmakers, an act of statesmanship that has been acknowledged by Nigerians. We are equally proud of the APC lawmakers, who stood firm in defence of the President and our great party during the budget presentation.

We call on the National Assembly to rise above political and selfish interests by putting the country first in its consideration of the proposed N8.83 trillion 2019 national budget. The proposed budget provides a realistic and implementable framework that will spur the administration’s effort to achieve a a prosperous, strong and stable Nigeria.

Apc+Pdp = Political nuisance

But to be honest, that was a childish act from the Pdp lawmakers. Opposition is not madness

I love the maturity of PMB.

Very very irresponsible of the opposition party to behave in such manner. I do not blame them though, i blamed the ineffective buffoon that called himself the leader of the house who could not control the barbaric behavior of the house. It's a really shameful act by the NASS
Anyways, PMB/PYO till 2023.

Forget about APC or PDP,what happened at the National Assembly is embarrassing. A President is presenting a budget for the whole nation and it was turned to a campaign ground! Ridiculous.

I have never seen where Theresa May (that most people have been referencing eventhough we stopped practicing that system of Government for decades) been interrupted while presenting a national budget, listen to the presentation and pick loopholes but the touts at the NASS were busy shouting.

Those guys aren’t there to represent Nigerians but themselves as witnessed today. A big shame!

Friendly fire

APC mistook the actions of their disgruntled members protesting the fraudulent cash and carry primaries of Oshi-omoh-OLE as a protest by well behaved and cultured PDP lawmakers.

APC should look in the mirror and they would see the people heckling their incompetent party leader.

Seriously I feel Buhari has been too soft on these people, I mean PDP leaders at the National Assembly and their members and sympathisers Nationwide. Use the military to arrest and court martial Saraki, Dogara and PDP hierarchy and sentence them to death and nothing will happen because these people are fast becoming nuisance to the society and enemies to Nigeria development.

God and Osusumaye will join hands and punish anybody that quote's me and type rubbish

Who is trying to exonerate who angry The NASS members all acted irresponsibly.

PDP was opposing the lies they felt the president was dishing out while the APC were trying to campaign for a failed president when he entered, making his presentation & exited.
