Speaking on the recent fracas at the National Assembly, Buhari slammed the security agents for over-reaching their constitutional powers by locking down the legislative chambers.
“ It is a distressing situation where those who are supposed to protect the constitution are the ones undermining it. That place-House of Representative and Senate-sacred place they shouldn’t go there as members of law enforcement agencies much less fire teargas and harassing them, they are brreaking down and undermining the constitution and if they are doing that who is going to correct it? “ He said.
The National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, described Buhari as one Nigerian who has show great passion to bring about change in the affairs in the country.
“We are glad that you are one of those Nigerians who have offered themselves on the platform of the APC with the vision and passion for change and the time has come when business has to be transacted differently in this country.
