Pioneer National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), Chief Adebisi Akande on Saturday described the purported missing of 2016 budget in the Senate as a demonstration of indiscipline that produced the current senate leadership
Chief Akande who expressed discontentment over the development, lamented that a huge document as Nigeria’s budget could be missing in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
The APC national leader made the disclosure during a media chat as part of the activities to mark his 77th birthday at his country home, Ila-Orangun, Ila Local Government of Osun State.
Chief Akande said that his party was mindful of consequences of allowing wrong people to be at the helms of affairs which was the reason the party wanted disciplined individuals to lead the Senate.
He said: “Nigeria’s budget is a huge document and one wonders how such document of that size could be missing in the senate. The development is a fallout of indiscipline that brought the current leadership of the senate into the position and as you know, that was not the choice of our party”.
Akande said he is in good agreement with President Muhammadu Buhari and that he does not feel marginalised contrary to insinuation that the presidency was trying to edge him out.
“I’m in good agreement with President Buahri. Therefore, I don’t fell marginalised. In fact I was in the presidency few days ago and there was no sign to suggest that the presidency wants to edge me out. But I don’t know what somebody may be planning somewhere”, Akande said.
The APC leader urged all Nigerians to support the ongoing anti-corruption war as he bemoaned the level of corruption inherited from the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Dignitaries from within and outside the state including political office holders and members of the party stormed the country home of the elder statesman to rejoice with him on his birthday.
