Shehu Sani: The political elite see Buhari as a meal… they want him re-elected for survival

Shehu Sani: The political elite see Buhari as a meal… they want him re-elected for survival

Shehu Sani, a senator from Kaduna central, says the Nigeria political elite see President Muhammadu Buhari as a “meal”, and that they want him to seek re-election for their own survival.

Aisha Alhassan, minister of women affairs, stirred a storm she when declared she would support Atiku Abubakar if he runs for office in 2019.

In an interview with the BBC Hausa, the minister said she would support her godfather, Abubakar, even if Buhari seeks re-election.

She also claimed that the president told members of his party – the All Progressives Congress (APC) – that he would only spend a single term in office to “clean up the mess of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”.

Her declaration and statements have ignited conversations on whether the president would seek re-election or not.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Sani said while the masses genuinely want the president to seek re-election, the political elite are putting pressure on him to run for office a second time because they consider him as a “meal and mill”.

“Whether Baba will seek re-election or not remains his individual decision to make. He is old enough and has been in politics and government longer than anyone in his party or cabinet as to know what to do and the right time to do it. He is the best person to judge and decide for himself what to do,” he wrote.

“The nation still needs his services but it’s still up to him to decide if he is willing and fit to provide more or not. The political elite in habit of applying pressure are pressure cookers and they see Baba as a meal and a mill.

“Baba is like a good driver who has driven for a long distance and so much cherished by his passengers, whether he is willing to cover more distance its best decided by him. Every leader chooses his seat and space in the ship of his and his country’s history.

“The reasons the masses want Baba continue is not the same as with the reason the elite want Baba to seek re-election .The former see him as a good force who should continue to lead them to the land of their dreams or the promised land; the latter see him as the lifebuoy for their political survival and relevance.”
