BREAKING: Forget About 2019 Presidency, You Cannot Preside Over Dead People – Shehu Sani Shakes Aso Rock, Tells Buhari To His Face


BREAKING: Forget About 2019 Presidency, You Cannot Preside Over Dead People – Shehu Sani Shakes Aso Rock, Tells Buhari To His Face

Human Rights Activist and Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has told President Muhammadu Buhari, to forget about his ambition of running for a second term next year.

According to Sani, the President and his second term campaigners have no basis to seek for the votes of Nigerians, when Fulani herdsmen and kidnappers have waged an unrelenting war against many communities in the country, with scores killed and properties destroyed.
The Senator said: “It is wrong to be talking about the re-election of Buhari as President, when hundreds of lives are being lost and people are being massacred in different parts of the country.
“In a time of bloodshed like this, the issue should be how to come together and address the problem. But those marketing the President at a time of this bloodshed, are like people dancing on the graves of Nigerians.
“Campaigning for Buhari for next year’s election when people are being killed, when orphans and widows are being produced as a result of the tragedy of these circumstances and people are being kidnapped, I think amounts to political sacrilege.
“It is an insult on the conscience of Nigerians and it is an insult on the moral integrity of Nigerians for anybody to ignore what is happening, and simply walk to the President and tell him that what is important at this material time is his re-election campaign for next year’s election.”
He lamented the level of attacks and killings by armed Fulani herdsmen in Benue State, saying: “If we allow this trend to continue, it would threaten the peace and unity of this country.
“I advise people advising the President and strategising for him to contest the elections to spare him some time, advise him well, and provide a solid strategy to end the carnage and atrocities that are going on in the country today.
“Human life is more important than politics. Forget about 2019 Presidency, because you cannot preside over dead people. The images we see in both social and traditional media is heart-rending and despicable.
“I can tell you that over a year ago, the President was in Zamfara State, in Military fatigue, to address the problem of banditry and mass killing. The President should be seen in any part of the country where such violence occurs.
“The President must visit Southern Kaduna, Birnin Gwari, Taraba, Benue, Rivers, and Adamawa States. It gives people some hope that their Commander-in-Chief is determined and committed to defend and protect them.”
