Lawmakers beahed liked animals - Sagay

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay, on Wednesday, said senators and members of the House of Representatives, who booed President Muhammadu Buhari during his 2019 Budget Presentation, ‘behaved like animals’.

In remarks made during an interview, Sagay further described the lawmakers as people who were demonstrating their low level of humanity and conduct.

“The actions of the lawmakers who booed the President was an animal behavior. Harry Belafonte used to sing one song. He said ‘A donkey will sometimes bray, let him bray; let him bray’. That is my response to the actions of the lawmakers. We should allow their donkeys bray.

“They behave like animals. We should just tolerate them at their low level of humanity and conduct. You saw what the President told them. He said they are expected to be above this because the whole world is watching them.

“I think the President is wrong because they are not above what they did. That is their level and they are demonstrating it to the world. So I am not surprised at all.”
