Nigeria Decides: Shehu Sani reacts as Buhari distances govt from El-Rufai’s threat




The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has reacted as President Muhammadu Buhari distanced his government from threats against foreigners over Nigeria’s elections.


Recall that the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai had said foreigners who intervene in the polls will “go back in body bags”.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governor made the threat when he featured on NTA’s Tuesday Live programme anchored by Cyril Stober.
“Those that are calling for anyone to come and intervene in Nigeria, we are waiting for the person that would come and intervene, they would go back in body bags,” the governor said.

However, Buhari, in his nationwide broadcast on Thursday assured the foreigners of their safety during the elections.

In an apparent response, Buhari had said: “I want to assure all Nigerians, the diplomatic community and all foreign election observers of their safety and full protection.

“Any comments or threats of intimidation from any source do not represent the position of the Federal Government of Nigeria.”

Reacting, Sani commended the President for dissociating his government and Nigeria from such threats. In a tweet, Sani wrote: “Thank you Mr President for disassociating your Government and the nation from the violent threats against foreign observers and the assurances of a peaceful elections.I commend you.”
