There was a mild drama in the House of Representatives yesterday during the 2013 budget presentation by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Shortly after the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, finished delivering vote of thanks, Jonathan walked up to Tambuwal and personally collected the speech.
In the speech, Tambuwal had accused Jonathan of refusing to implement various resolutions of the National Assembly which he described as disrespect to rule of law.
Apparently touched by the speech, Jonathan went over and demanded for the speech.
At first, Tambuwal declined to hand it over, promising that he will send it later but the President insisted on going with a copy. He then collected it and handed it over to one of his aides.
