Senator Shehu Sani And His Familiar Deceitful Terrain, By Musa Baba Sabo
There is no gainsaying the fact that the senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani has spent the better part of his almost two years in the senate attacking our political leaders, including Mr. President and his economic policies as well as our amiable governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufa’I, in his vaulting ambition to become Governor of Kaduna State in 2019.
For those who are familiar with his antics and penchant for blackmail and intimidations to further his political interests, Shehu Sani’s recent tantrums and diatribe against our amiable and hardworking Governor, whom he perceives as a stumbling block/obstacle to his inordinate ambition of becoming governor of Kaduna State in 2019, will not be a surprise.
We remember clearly how he employed blackmail and intimidation, his stock-in-trade, in the build up to the 2015 elections to turn the people especially our teeming party supporters, against the gentle Senator Sani Saleh in his quest for the seat. These antics and maneuvers are well known to us and in the fullness of time we will expose him. Here’s a man who deceptively bears the toga of activism, pretending to champion the interest of the masses, but we have since unraveled his deceptive character. His recent tantrums are nothing but the manifestation of a Senator who has lost focus on his objectives in the senate at the expense of the good people of Kaduna State.
It beats my imagination that while the state government under Mallam El-rufa’I is working assiduously hard towards making Kaduna great again, detractors such as Shehu Sani continue to pull our collective wheel of progress in their determined effort to distract our leader and retard our progress as a result. My advice, this pretender should be ignored.
The All Progressive Congress Party in the state has stated that it suspended the senator following his various anti-party activities and utterances, which are capable of destroying the party in the state. Instead of addressing with the party, he resorted to using the social media for vitriolic attacks on the person of Mallam.
Shehu Sani should know that Mallam El-Rufai is the governor of Kaduna State and does not deserve such uncouth choice of abusive words. But we know Shehu Sani, just like the leopard cannot change its colour, the Senator is treading his all too familiar terrain of vitriolic attacks on leaders as a springboard for political recognition in furtherance of his primordial interests. We are also aware that he stage-managed the so-called ransacking of his constituency office by some hoodlums, true-to-type without waiting for police investigation; he ran to the media and accused the State Government. Haba! Senator, your antics are well too familiar.
It is humble advice that, we ignore Shehu Sani’s inciting comments designed to provoke negative reactions against Mallam and aimed at frustrating Government’s effort in ensuring sustainable development in the State.
Let me use this medium to call on all peace loving people of our dear State to unite and support the administration of Governor Nasir El-Rufai in its uncommon developmental efforts, which is visible for all to see. Kaduna State has been neglected for too long; it’s about time we moved to the next level and with Mallam El-Rufai, we will get there sooner than later.
