Former Senator of Kaduna Central District in the 8th assembly, Shehu Sani, has warned the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to be wary in his dealings with northerners, especially their political elites.
Shehu said most of the northern politicians are hypocrites who will betray him in his presidential pursuit. Sani, while explaining his recent tweet to Tinubu on his 69th birthday, advised the former Lagos State governor to get someone he trusts to always translate what they say in Hausa whenever he visits the North.
He said the majority of the common people in the North do not support the touted presidential ambition of Tinubu in 2023.
He advised Tinubu to learn from the ordeals of the late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola who, despite his support and achievement in the North, was betrayed by northerners.
Sani, who spoke in Osogbo on Sunday, claimed that what the northern elite tell Tinubu in English language is not what they say in Hausa. According to him, it is important for the APC chieftain to get a Hausa language translator whenever he visits the North.
He advised Tinubu to restrategise on how to gain support in the North, saying the common people in the North do not support him to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
When asked whether he will support Tinubu when he finally makes his intention known in contesting the 2023 presidential election, the former lawmaker said: “If my People’s Redemption Party (PRP) adopts him, I will support him.”
