Buhari’s ministers, appointees paid protesters to rubbish NASS – PDP
The People’s Democratic Party PDP says it was unfortunate allegations that some serving cabinet members as well as other appointees of President Muhammadu Buhari paid protesters who stormed the National Assembly complex on Monday to demand for an end to execution of constituency projects by members of the National Assembly.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan yesterday while briefing newsmen said Nigerians were shocked over revelations in which cabinet ministers and appointees of the President were alleged to have paid the protesters with a view to using them to embarrass the National Assembly.
“Members of the National Assembly are direct representatives of the people and the failure of the Federal Government to recall Senator Dino Melaye, despite the huge resources invested, speaks volume of the real position of Nigerians on the ongoing stand-off between the executive and the legislature,” he said.
It would be recalled that protesters in their hundreds on Monday stormed the National Assembly demanding for an end to the execution of constituency projects by senators and members of the House of Representatives.
