Senator Shehu Sani has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to free himself from cabals in his administration. Sani said this during an interview with a Lagos-based national newspaper, on Monday.
“President Buhari needs to free himself from the cabals around him–the hyenas, the jackals and other predatory animals that are with him,” he said.
According to the senator, the president possesses all the requisite qualities needed to steer the affairs of Nigeria for another four years. Shehu also revealed that he had known Buhari in Kaduna, years before becoming the nation’s president and could vouch for his integrity and competence.
Despite the sterling qualities the president possesses, senator Shehu explained that the nation’s leader should be a team player, who can carry everyone along.
This was just as he criticised the Federal Government for failing to address incessant killings in some northern parts of the country.
He believes that the bloodshed in some regions of the country, coupled with ethnic rivalry, if not addressed, could dent the reputation of the current government.
“There exists also an apparent failure as Nigerians have never been more divided than they are now. People no longer see themselves as Nigerians. They see themselves as northerners, southerners, Muslims and Christians.
“And, the killings going on in the North Central and the north western part of Nigeria is a serious dent on the reputation, integrity and competence of Buhari,” Shehu added.
The lawmaker praised government for improving the economy and the security challenges; with respect to Boko Haram attacks in the North East.
Shehu absolved the National Assembly over non-confirmation for the action of the appointment of acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s boss, Mr Ibrahim Magu. He said the lawmakers acted on a security report from the Department of State Services (DSS) which indicted Magu.
