Anti-Buhari Protest: Thanks For Defending Buhari, Presidency Tells Senate

2017 Budget

Ita Enang, senior special assistant to the president on national assembly matters (senate), has commended the senate for throwing weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari in the ongoing #resumeorresign protest led by popular Musician, Charly Boy.

The senate had described the call for the president’s resignation as unjustified, saying that his medical vacation in London is in line with the constitution of the country.

Enang however thanked the upper chamber, saying “the senate has always stood right and upright on matters of national interest and whenever there is objection or anything that the senate has objection to, we look at it maturely and we look at it amicably and in this particular situation as in most other situations I commend the senate,” he said.

“We thank the senate for the stabilising statement and for the position they have taken because it is the position of the law of the constitution.

“The president is entitled to, under the constitution, transmit formal letter to the senate and house of representatives informing them of his vacation and until he returns and transmits another letter, the acting president is still in charge and there is no vacuum in the country.

“So all actions of the government like that of the executive, legislature and the judiciary are going on and nothing is affected adversely by the vacation of Mr President since there is no vacuum in the country.”
