The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has told the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, that he is “ignorant of the budgetary process.”
Mr. Dogara said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan as he reacted to Tinubu’s allegation that both the speaker and senate president, Bukola Saraki had padded the national budget for four years.
The speaker advised the APC chieftain to watch his use of language.
“Only the ignorant with dubious academic certificates will say the maker of a document has padded the document that only he can constitutionally make.
“Finally, we advise Asiwaju Tinubu to be circumspect in his use of language.
“In this case, he spoke as a spokesperson of depravity. Our reaction must therefore be seen as a provoked counter-punch.
“Any one can descend into the gutter if he so wishes; but no one has a monopoly of gutter language.
“We won’t run an adult day care centre anymore on matters like this,” The statement partly read.
