- Shehu Sani has said that the case of Bayelsa gubernatorial election will prove if President Muhammadu Buhari is for everyone
- Sani called on President Buhari not to cancel his trip to Bayelsa for the swearing-in ceremony
- The former Kaduna senator urged the president to do what is right despite his political loyalty to the APC
A former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to cancel plans to attend the swearing-in ceremony that is supposed to be held in Bayelsa.
Before the Supreme Court's ruling which sacked the governor-elect in the state, David Lyon, the ceremony was fixed for Friday, February 14.
Sani said that the president, to prove that he is for everyone, irrespective of political difference, should not postpone or cancel his trip to Bayelsa for the occasion.
However, the former senator's comment has led to some reactions among Nigerians on social media.
A Twitter user, Kuwa Garba, said that as a supportive and staunch member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), President Buhari has no intention to attend the swearing-in ceremony of any other person apart from that of Lyon.
Moreover, another social media subscriber, Ojooluwa Ibiloye, said that with the way things are for now, Bayelsa state has no governor-elect, until the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) issues a certificate of return based on the apex court's directive.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that hours to his swearing-in as governor of Bayelsa, Lyon lost his bid to occupy the number one seat in the state.
It came as a surprise when the governor-elect was sacked by the apex judicial body. Lyon was already warming up for his swearing-in which was scheduled for Friday, February 14, when the news came in.
Photos had been circulating online, showing the governor-elect who is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the rehearsal for his swearing-in.
The photos showed Lyon dressed in a multi-coloured shirt, a pair of jeans, and white trainers, at the parade ground having his pre-swearing-in exercise.
The governor-elect flanked by military personnel was seen waving at his supporters with a big smile on his face while taking part in the activities.
