Media Awards Won’t Save You From EFCC, Shehu Sani Tells Governors
Senator Shehu Sani

The senator representing Kaduna Central at the Nigerian Senate, Shehu Sani, has criticised the awards usually given by media outlets to state governors in the country.

Writing on Twitter without being specific, Sani, a lawmaker on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP),  noted that events marking media honour being awarded to governors dates back to 1999.

Senator Sani said recipients of such awards should not expect sympathy or solidarity from the same media outfits that recognised them with the awards if the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrests them after leaving office.

His words: “Since 1999, its in the habit of news media organizations to give awards to incumbent Governors for performance or whatever.

“The caveat is that the awarded Governor should not expect from the awardees any form of sympathy or solidarity when he is out of power & in the hands of EFCC.”
