Endorse ‘The Devil‘ You Know — Senator Shehu Sani Tells G-5 Governors
Former senator Shehu Sani has offered a recommendation as Nigerians wait for the G5 governors, led by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, to make a decision on which presidential candidate to endorse.
The Wike-led faction opposes Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential nominee, due to the party’s zoning structure.
The group, which has refused to campaign for Atiku, said the North can’t produce the presidential flagbearer and the national chairman.
The G-5 group comprising governors from Benue, Oyo, Enugu, Abia, and Rivers State demanded the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as PDP National Chairman.
Wike, who became aggrieved after losing to Atiku, said the G-5 wants the position of the party’s National Chairman zoned to the Southern part of the country.
However, Sani, in a tweet, wrote: “G-5 Governors should endorse ‘the devil’ they know and not…
“The nation is blessed with presidential candidates with democratic credentials and history of tolerance to political criticism, political opposition and political dissent. We don’t need an autocrat allergic and hostile to different opinions.”
