Budget 2019: Here’s what Nigerians are saying concerning NASS members booing Buhari

Mixed reactions have trailed the booing of President Muhammadu Buhari by members of the National Assembly.

The President on Wednesday, in a joint session of the National Assembly, presented the 2019 budget, amidst being cheered by his party members and being booed by lawmakers from the opposition party.

While making his presentation in a house led by an opposition party member, Bukola Saraki, Buhari was interrupted with chants of  ‘lies, propaganda ’. Taking a break of his address, Buhari urged the booing lawmakers to behave properly, that the world was watching.

“May I appeal to the honourable members that the world is watching us and we’re supposed to be above this.”

Many Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the drama. While some scolded those lawmakers who booed the president, others gave them a pat on the shoulder, saying Buhari deserves what he got.
