The lawmaker disclosed that the commissioner was supposed to appear before the committee at 10 am on Friday but did not come until after an hour.

He said: “While we were trying to explain ourselves to him, he interjected and enquired about who we were. We told him we are the legislators and another arm of government but he kept asking who we are.

“We asked him to go and come back for the defence when he realised we are something. We have eight days from today to end the budget defence proceedings.”

In his contribution, Yunusa Ahmad, the member representing Warji Constituency, said that the lawmakers were not against Mr Tilde but his policies and conduct.
