– The senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District urged to president reshuffle his cabinet
– He stated that reshuffling the Federal Executive Council will put the country on track again
The senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his cabinet immediately he arrives from the United Kingdom where he is currently on medical vacation.
According to the senator, reshuffling the Federal Executive Council will put the country on track again.
Senator made the comment at the weekend while touring the late Malam Aminu Kano museum in Kano state, Thisday reports.
His words: “Buhari is an island in his government and by the time he is back, he needs to disinfect and fumigate his government because in his anti-corruption crusade, he is the only person who believes in the anti-corruption war, people within his corridors of power are simply Buhari in their faces, but anti-Buhari at hearts.
“Now, tell me, how a president (Buhari) who publicly declared his own assets; and apart from him and his vice-president, nobody, even within his own close kitchen cabinet or outside veranda cabinet could publicly declare their assets. This shows the disbelief in the style of his own life and his own manner of leadership. President Buhari is surrounded by vultures and hyena.”
Senator Sani hailed the prudent life Malam Aminu Kano left behind, saying it could have served as a beckon to which we will find a new and transparent Nigeria.
He said: “We cannot achieve one hundred percent corrupt-free society, but our struggle to achieve it will be a continuous process.
“Nigerian politicians have since abandoned the prudent way of Malam Aminu Kano and the honesty of Sarduana of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello. They have since abandoned the focus of these great leaders.
“What matters to them is how they can build political empire and then also use it as a launching pad to build a business empire. They are not entrusted in freeing the masses from poverty.
“They are simply interested in leveraging themselves to stupendous position of wealth. We live in a country whereby people in the position of power seem to create jobs for the children of the poor; while there are reserved positions for children of the rich in Federal Civil Service, this is what has become of this country today.”
He noted that if we are to build a new democratic, transparent and corrupt-free society, we must start from public office holders.
“We must begin to lay clear examples because we cannot have governors, rich senators, rich members of House of Representatives, rich ministers who have simply become rich because they are in public office and for you to expect any fundamental change in the way and manner Nigeria is today.
“We must begin to act fast because Nigerians were corrupted by the leaders, not that Nigerians corrupted the leaders. Indeed, it is the leaders that corrupted our people,” he adde
President Buhari has been in London since January 19. The presidency had first announced that he was there for a 10-day leave. But he has since extended the leave on medical grounds.
Afenifere chieftain and elder statesman, Ayo Adebanjo recently said the presidency is not sincere about the true state of President Buhari’s health, adding that those around the president were taking Nigerians for fools.
Similarly, former President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dr Dozie Ikedife has expressed his displeasure over how the presidency is handling the president’s health situation.
