2016 Budget: Buhari Bowed Before Saraki, Dogara, NASS Members; A Message To Sahara Reporters By Bisola Animashaun
As foretold, all political storms and intrigues that plagued the 8th National Assembly in the onset, particularly the Saraki multidimensional-cases and the rifts in the House of Reps against Dogara, have stylishly died down and the depth of all wounds are becoming healed while the surface is getting smoothly cleaned, day-in-day-out.
As extension of political fracas, which is much expected, the discerned stiff attitude of President Buhari towards Saraki during the ‘beleaguered’ days of his leadership as an emerged Senate President against the will of his party is also apparently going off. The causes, effects and eventual end that made the whole phenomenon aren’t unclear to be political and severe game of superiority.
It is however surprising to notice that, neglecting the serene and exciting conduct of the joint session, particularly the well-articulated address of the Senate President that has received unprecedented appreciations by citizens online and offline, Sahara Reporters in a bid to cover up the obvious and smear when unnecessary, decided to make mockery of the leadership of the National Assembly when the online media posted that @bukolasaraki @nassnigeria cannot fix a broken seat to which @MBuhari bowed.
Its no mistake if one assumes that Sahara Reporters is seriously pained that Buhari eventually took a bow before Saraki. The pain is obviously exposed when it has to launch an attack basically on the offence of a broken seat. Perhaps the seat even got broken due to the congestion experienced at the chamber, that gracious day; ‘Sahara’ can never be calm to think of this. It’s a sorry case! This is, in fact, a first-roll seat that has never been spotted broken before that day. Correct me if I’m wrong, please.
Although it is true that Saraki is the Chairman of the incumbent Assembly, but it’s not unseen that the session was hosted at the Green Chamber. If at all anyone should be held responsible for the broken seat, its not arguable that Dogara’s name should be included. This is if we were to make any fuss out of this issue.
Dear Sahara Reporters, why is it always Saraki?
I hereby join other compatriots to urge the government on full implementation of the beautiful #Budget2016. There would be shortcomings, certainly, but we implore the executive and legislative arm to ensure un-jeopardised mission of #Change.
God bless Nigeria my country…
