The social space was awash with reactions to the 2019 budget presentation of President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday.
While addressing a joint session of the national assembly during the budget presentation, some lawmakers booed him.
Buhari cautioned the legislators but they refused and the voices of those opposed to the president were louder than those of his loyalists.
Here are some Twitter reactions to the incident.
If our leaders insist on acting like unruly students, then disciplinary actions should be taken against them like unruly student. They totally disrupted the process. What alternative is the opposition offering with this noise? They can’t even fight intelligently.#Budget2019

By *Nigerians* you mean the senators? I don’t regard them as real Nigerians, they are booing him for their selfish ambitions and not for the good of the common Nigerian

Presenting a budget less than two months to general elections to an opposition led NASS. Of course, only a man of impeccable character and guts can do that. #NextLevelBudget#Budget2019https://t.co/TSrSNiBmpM

Representation is neither about chanting “sai Buhari ” nor booing the president but about ensuring the people of your constituency get the dividends of democracy. Most of those who hailed or booed the president today have nothing to show in their constituents #Budget2019

The drama that played out during the joint-sitting for #Budget2019 presentation by PMB, only reinforces my belief that most members of the @nassnigeria are more interested in their own self-survival & political affiliations than they’re about the national interest.

What happened today at National Assembly between the pro-Buhari and anti-Buhari legislators is shameful and an utter disrespect of Nigerians. Our democracy still have a long way to go. #Budget2019#NextLevelBudget

We shouldn’t focus mainly on the Presidency and governorship election in 2019, we should also make sure that only sensible people are elected and returned to the National Assembly #Budget2019

This is quite irresponsible and an international embarrassment. The President is speaking and a senator is saying lies!@dino_melaye lacks good home upbringing! #Budget2019
