Ex-lawmaker knocks Tinubu
Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker mocked Tinubu for his long-overdue silence on the brewing Fulani herdsmen-farmer crisis in the southwest.
In a tweet on Wednesday, February 3, the former lawmaker said the APC national leader's continuous hush over the ethnic tension generated by the eviction notice issued to the herders in Oyo and Ondo states is because he does not want to "lose his cap."
Sani said Tinubu's silence is a coward attempt by the Jagaban (Tinubu's pseudonym) to save his "caps and shoes." He said:
"If the Jagaban opposes eviction, he will lose his shoes; If the Jagaban supports eviction, he will lose his cap. Just wear your thick mask and off your phone our leader."
