Shehu Sani Reacts To Ayo Adebanjo’s ‘Breakup’ Of Nigeria Statement
Adebanjo had said that Nigerians should be prepared for a post-election crisis if the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi does not win the next election.
According to Adebanjo, there will be nothing like united Nigeria if Obi’s presidential bid fails this year.
Adebanjo, who adopted Obi as his preferred presidential candidate in 2022, has maintained that Obi remains the best candidate.
He insisted that Obi is not only competent but should be voted by Nigerians as their next president for the sake of equity and fairness, and to keep Nigeria united.
While speaking at the celebration of the life and times of the late President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Prof. George Obiozor, in Lagos on Wednesday, as reported by The Sun, Adebanjo said Obiozor’s death came at a time Nigerians were in a battle to save the country from years of oppression.
He said, “Forget Nigeria if you don’t vote for Obi. I am not boasting and it is not a threat. When we say we must come together, is it by cheating one of us? Is that equity, justice, and peace?”
In a tweet on his official handle on Thursday, Shehu Sani said Chief Adebanjo has the right to market his preferred presidential candidate.
Shehu Sani, however, noted that threatening the country with the breakup if Obi is not voted “is unbecoming of him”
According to the former lawmaker, he does not think even Obi will subscribe to his statement.
“The respected elder statesman Chief Ayo Adebanjo has the right to market his preferred Presidential candidate, but threatening us on the breakup of our country if his candidate is not voted is unbecoming of him. I also don’t think even his candidate will subscribe to this” Sani wrote.
