Two weeks after abandoning his party, Senator Shehu Sani has launched ferocious attack by predicting doom for his estranged All Progressives Congress, APC in the forthcoming elections.
Sani, who left APC after failing to get the party’s Senate ticket for Kaduna Central Senatorial District and joining Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, urged the former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio who recently joined APC to return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He had been promised the ticket by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the party, but Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State wrestled him to the ground and grabbed the ticket for Sani Uba.
His prediction of doom came a day after another APC senator and former governor of Yobe State predicted that the party could lose the election in its Northeast stronghold.
Predicting doom for his former party in a tweet laced with parables Monday evening, Senator Sani said: “Oh ye Godswill, leave Nineveh through the Tigris River before dawn and returneth to thy city Damascus.” He spoke of Nineveh which by Biblical accounts had been slated for destruction and had a prophet, Jonah sent to warn it of its imminent catastrophe.
That tweet had been re-tweeted more than 200 times and received more than 600 likes.
Following up on his allegory, Senator Sani charged stakeholders not to upbraid Senator Ibrahim over his insinuations concerning the ruling party.
“Stop heckling or throwing stones on Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim; he is just a meteorologist. All you need to do is to mind the weather and appreciate his forecast.”
