The senator representing Borno South Senatorial District, Mohammed Ali Ndume, has compared ex-President Muhammadu Buhari and incumbent Bola Tinubu.
Ndume, who spoke yesterday on Channels Television’s Politics Today, said:
“The President here is in charge. He takes charge, unlike our former President. That President will just give you an assignment; he will not look over you.
“That is where the problem is, and he (Buhari) knows that. That was the mistake President Buhari made. He ended up confessing these days that he had more kleptocrats in his government than people that had more interest at heart.”
Ndume went on to defend the rendition of President Bola Tinubu’s campaign tune at the hallowed chamber of the National Assembly during the presentation of the 2024 budget, which sparked outrage among Nigerians.
He argued that the lawmakers also recited the’ sai baba’ mantra under the era of former President Muhammadu Buhari.
“It is not a crime. Honestly, it is not a big deal. In this country, we pick on trivial things. When a President walks in, there are times that some members take advantage of that situation to even challenge the President directly,” he said.
