Senator Shehu Sani has warned President Muhammadu Buhari to be careful about those who publicly declare their support and loyalty at this current period when one of his ministers has warned him against seeking re-election in 2019.
Sani spoke in a post on social media on Saturday, September 9, after Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state had claimed he warned Buhari against appointing Aisha Alhassan as minister with the argument that she never campaigned or voted for the president.

In his usual parable which he illustrated with snakes, Sani warned Buhari to be mindful that those who spat venom before him and those who did behind him are all snakes.
He went further to state that the former are even of lesser evil than the latter.
“The Disloyal cobra who spat venom before you and the friendly viper who sprayed venom behind you are all snakes. In comparison, the former is of lesser evil than the later,” he said.
The senator did not however mention any particular name, but it is believed that he was speaking about the recent claim by Alhassan that she was very loyal to Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president, and the fact that some top politicians in the country had been reacting.
