Senator Dino Melaye has described President Mohammadu Buhari as mentally, intellectually and physically unfit to govern Nigeria.
The Kogi West Senator made this remark when he spoke at The Osasu Symposium in Abuja on Thursday. He accused the executive of fabricating lies against the National Assembly when it accused the legislators of delaying the passage of budgets.
In response to a question on whether President Buhari reads laws that are passed by the national assembly, Senator Melaye said Nigerians knows that President Buhari is not fit to govern the country.
Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, earlier noted that the President only sign laws in the interest of Nigeria, adding that his refusal to sign some bills into law was also in the interest of Nigeria.
Melaye in response to Amaechi said; “I know Honourable Rotimi Amaechi very well, and he is my brother, he is my friend. Normally, he is more eloquent than this, normally, he would speak with precision than this.
“But you know when you are not saying the truth, it will never flow. The issue of the budget as raised by Honourable Rotimi Amaechi, I am happy that he was a legislator, and he was a presiding officer at the state house of assembly.”
“The truth will remain the truth. At what point did you bring the budget? If you will all recall that the president of the senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives, had to write Mr. President, accusing leaders of MDAs for refusing to come and defend their budget.
“The president had to order his ministers to go to the national assembly and defend their budgets before they came.
“The truth is, all political appointees, including Rotimi Amaechi must become born again, if we want to move this country forward.
“In whether the president reads these laws or not, all Nigerians, we know ourselves; you cannot give what you don’t have. President Muhammadu Buhari is not intellectually, emotionally, physically, mentally, equipped to govern this country.”
