Senator Dino Melaye on thursday demanded that president Muhammadu Buhari apologises to the national assembly for unsavoury comments against lawmakers.
Coming through a point of order, Senator Melaye described the comments made at the reception held in honor of the Buhari-support group against lawmakers as ‘not presidential’
The Kogi lawmaker lamented that it was the president’s body language towards the national assembly was the reason why the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, and heads of ministries, departments and agencies often refuse to honor invitations by lawmakers.
His words, let anybody come and confront me publicly in the national assembly. What have they been doing? Some of them have been there for 10 years, what are they doing?
He faulted the fact that the custom boss led a campaign group to the villa even as a public officer. The lawmaker stressed that comptroller-general is a rank, and that any occupant of the office should be in uniform.
