Senator Shehu Sani Senator Shehu Sani (APC, Kaduna Central) has flayed seven governors from his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, for asking President Muhammadu Buhari to contest for the President in 2019 despite the killings going on in several parts of the country.
The APC governors, Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Abubakar Bello (Niger), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Ibrahim Geidam (Yobe) and Jibrilla Bindow (Adamawa), had on Friday visited the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja asking him to seek re-election in 2019.
This came barely 24 hours after 73 persons killed by suspected herdsmen in Benue were buried.The senator took to his official Twitter handle on Saturday to condemn the governors’ endorsement, describing it as unfortunate.
“Seven governors in the Villa asking President Buhari to run at this material time when all hands should be on deck to advise or support him to end the mindless bloodletting and carnage in the country is most unfortunate. Human reasoning and human conscience where art thou?” he said.
