President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday animated legislators when he claimed that he has cold because of hardwork as the President of the country.
Mr. Buhari said this while presenting the 2020 Appropriation Bill to a joint session of the National Assembly in Abuja.
After observing protocols and before he began reading the details of the bill, the President apologized for his bad voice, disclosing that he has cold.
“Before I proceed to read the details of the budget, let me apologise for my voice.
“As you can hear in my voice, I have cold because I am working hard,” Buhari said.
This attracted loud laughter and applause from all those inside the chamber.
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, federal lawmakers, state governors, members of the Federal Executive Council and leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress, among others, witnessed the budget presentation.
