2027: Shehu Sani cautions norther leaders against double-crossing Tinubu


Former Kaduna lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has stressed the need for the North to allow President Bola Tinubu have his sedond term.

He attributed this to the need to preserve the country’s unity, saying the North should allow the South to complete the course as former it happened under former President Muhammadu Buhari.

In an interview with ‘Arise Television’, he explained: “There is evidence of rallying of forces. Regrouping of forces — political forces from the North — trying to use former President Buhari as a rallying point to evict the government of Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.

“And they hope to resurrect his political chance in the house of the masses and portray the government as one that has been undermining the North and one that has not been living up to its campaign promises to the region being that it has its highest votes from there.

“And I must warn that attempts to do that can create a serious problem for our country. Buhari was in power for eight years and there has never been any serious southerner that challenged his own government in terms of trying to remove him from office.

“And secondly, we should know that before you think of power, we should think of the whole country. We should be thinking of a united country, a peaceful country. Nigeria is still a fragile nation.

“What will happen if southern politicians decide to also form the idea of uniting themselves and making a position that this is their stand? There will be no Nigeria.

“So, they should, in the interest of the unity of the country and the future of the country, sacrifice their personal ambition at least for 2027.

“And the North will have the moral right to ask for power after the second term of this administration. This desperation for power will not go well for the region, for the unity and collective peace of our country as a nation.”
