The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has asked members of the National Assembly to apologise to Nigerians for behaving in an unruly and uncultured manner while President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2019 budget.
The Public Relations Officer of NANS, Mr Azeez Adeyemi, made the call on Friday in Abeokuta.
“Nigerian students believe that members of the National Assembly should be role models to Nigerian youths and students by displaying worthy and enviable character.
“It is important to place respect for the honour and integrity of our dear country above any personal or political interests.
“We, hereby, call on the leadership of the National Assembly to, as a matter of necessity, apologise to the entire people of Nigeria over the members’ unruly conduct during the president’s budget presentation,” he said.
Recall NaijaNews reported that the National Assembly on Wednesday, witnessed an unexpected drama as President Muhammadu Buhari was booed by some aggrieved lawmakers during the budget presentation to the lawmakers.
Both Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara attempted to restore order among the lawmakers during the budget presentation but were not successful in their attempts.
President Buhari had to openly caution the lawmakers, telling them they are been watched across the World, but this did not deter the lawmakers who continued to cheer and jeer the President.
