The senator representing Kaduna Central at the Nigerian Senate, Shehu Sani, says President Muhammadu Buhari and Adams Oshiomhole, the national Chairman of the All Progressives Party (APC), have ‘become weak and helpless in the face of firepower by the state governors’.
Senator Sani, who was commenting on the crisis rocking the ruling party in an interview with The Nation, said Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the ruling party, had done his best to resolve the crisis that forced him out of the party but that latter did not achieve much because he is not from the north.
His words: “I must be very frank with you, Tinubu has done his best but there is a limit to what he can do.
“He isn’t from the North and has a lot of issues to attend to but what was very clear, I won’t rain insults on the President or Chairman of the party, but what I would say is that their weaknesses, their vulnerability, their failures have been evident in the very sense that they were helpless in the face of firepower by the state governors”, the Kaduna central lawmaker added.
Meanwhile, Senator Sani resigned his membership of the APC in protest in October and joined the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) due to his inability to secure the ticket of the APC for the 2019 elections despite assurances from the national working committee of the party.
