“You Are Not Buhari’s Children” – Fani-Kayode Replies Sen. Na’Allah
Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has blasted the senator representing Kebbi South senatorial district in the National Assembly, Sen. Bala Ibn Na’Allah, for begging President Muhammadu Buhari to “tolerate” National Assembly members as his “children”.
Na’Allah, who is the Deputy Senate Leader, made the statement on Friday when he led a delegation to pay Sallah homage to Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said, “Mr President, I have the authority of each and every member of the senate and the house of representatives to wish you a blessed Eid-el-Fitr.
“And I have the authority of each and every one of us to equally pledge our loyalty and commitment to work with you for the betterment of this country and to wish you more strength; to wish you more health and most importantly Mr President to add additional degree of tolerance for you so that you tolerate us as your children.”
But responding to the comment via his verified Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode said, “When a Senator reduces and debases himself to this level of shameless, grovelling subservience it is pitiful. Senators are meant to act as a check and balance to the Pres. and not behave like his houseboys.”
