- Nigerian lawmakers have been accused of not having the courage to face President Buhari
- The allegation against them was raised by former Kaduna senator Shehu Sani
- Going further, he said the presidency does not care if Nigerians are killed daily
In what will shock many Nigerians, members of House of Representatives have been accused of being scared of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The allegation was raised by a former senator that represented Kaduna central senatorial district in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani.
He lambasted the lawmakers for doing nothing when the president refused to honour the invitation to appear before the House.
He disclosed this while speaking on BBC Hausa Service, The Cable reports.
Sani said there was no reason for them to summon the president and later reject the idea.
“People are being killed on a daily basis, thousands of people are kidnapped and many were stolen but it seems the presidency didn’t care. So, I see no reason why they will reject the invitation for the president to appear before them. These are some of the reasons why Jonathan was voted out but we are still witnessing it.
“What is the essence of the invitation if you will still reject it? That means you are afraid of the president. The invitation will help the president explain himself to Nigerians and also voice out his plans for the future."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that in what will annoy many youths in northern Nigeria, Sani called on them to leave Bishop Mathew Kukah alone and focus on the banditry problem facing them.
The former senator made this known in a tweet on Monday, December 28, following numerous statements from the youths against the Catholic bishop who recently lambasted the administration of President Buhari.
Sani in telling the youths to prioritise the security situation in the region used a maxim from southwest to convey his message.
