Boycott Buhari’s Budget Presentation, CUPP, PDP Tell Lawmakers


The Coalition of United Political Parties and the People’s Democratic Party have called on the leadership and members of the National Assembly to boycott Wednesday’s presentation of the 2019 budget by President Muhammadu Buhari.
CUPP, in a statement by its national spokesperson, Ikenga  Ugochinyere, said the lawmakers should boycott the exercise as a show of resentment and condemnation of  Buhari’s alleged three years’ reign of impunity, non-implementation of past budgets and abuse of state institutions.
Other reasons cited by the group included the President’s alleged incompetence, abuse of appropriation laws and refusal to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.
CUPP alleged that Buhari refused to implement previous budgets passed since 2015 till date and committed gross misconduct and obstruction of justice by refusing to obey judgments of courts including the ECOWAS court.
The group added that the President promised to fix the economy, but only succeeded in turning Nigeria into the poverty capital of the world.
It also described Buhari as a man who has divided the country along ethnic and religious lines.
