National shame as lawmakers call Buhari “Grass cutter “.
Lawmakers booed Buhari.
President Muhammadu Buhari has cautioned lawmakers in the joint session of the National Assembly to comport themselves as they are on television and being watched across the world.
Buhari who is currently at the Assembly presenting the 2019 Budget was being heckled by some lawmakers believed to be members of the opposition.
While some lawmakers stood up to give the President a clap, some others heckled him shouting, ‘Lies, propaganda’.
One of them called Buhari, ‘grass cutter’ and then booed him, in reference to the scandal which the last Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, was enmeshed.
Buhari had also claimed that every state was being touched by the Federal Government in the area of road construction.
