Honourable Muhammed Gudaji Kazaure has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari was booed during his budget presentation by some of his colleagues because he failed to give them bribe.
In a video being circulated on social media, the lawmaker representing Azaure/Roni/Gwiwa/Yankwashi constituency in Jigawa state claimed that his colleagues have been plotting against the president weeks before the budget presentation. He however said he and those in support of the president were able to shut them down.
Kazaure said before 2015, it was the norm for the president to bribe lawmakers before presenting budget but because President Buhari did not yield to their pressure, they decided to embarrass him.
He said: “They want him to bribe the member before he brings the budget. That is what the PDP members know. That is the experience before. The president is not corrupt. He cannot send us money here. That is why they are shouting.
“Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. That is the reason. The president did not bribe PDP members. That is why they are shouting because they are fighting the progress. Since last two weeks, they have been calling meetings to stop the president from presenting the budget. What we experience is that they don’t want this budget to be laid. They want to create problem.
“Secondly, in 2015 during PDP administration, they were bribed before the budget was sent here but the president will not bribe them. That is why they are shouting. Because the man is a man of integrity, we overpowered them and shut them down. This is the reality. They are expecting bribe but the president did not send them.
“Some of my colleagues are asking: Your president has not brought anything. I am telling you it is not an accusation. They are saying your boss has not brought anything. That is why they are shouting.”
