BREAKING: President Tinubu Escaped Poisonous Knife, Says Shehu Sani

BREAKING: President Tinubu Escaped Poisonous Knife, Says Shehu Sani—Senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial district in the 8th Nigerian Senate has revealed how President Bola Ahmed Tinubu escaped a ‘poisonous knife’ following his recent appointments.

Sani who took to his Twitter handle Wednesday, claimed Tinubu dodged a “poisonous knife” through his appointments of the Secretary to the State Government (SGF) and Chief of Staff (CoS).

Recall Tinubu appointed former Interior Minister, George Akume as the new SGF while appointing Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila as his CoS.

Akume, who was sworn-in by the President on Wednesday at the Aso Villa, had served during the second tenure of the former President Muhammadu Buhari as Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs.

Before Akume and Gbajabiamila were appointed, insinuations were rife in various quarters that the former Kaduna State governor would get one of the positions considering his closeness to the President during electioneering.

Reacting to the development, Sani, who was apparently referring to comments credited to El-Rufai on Islamisation agenda, said Tinubu had “dodged a poisonous knife” by scheming the former governor out of the two positions he described as “critical”.

“If Tinubu had appointed ‘Mr Over Sabi’ as SGF or Chief of Staff, he would have sown the seed of discord between the President and the Vice President, speak and move around as more important than the two. Tinubu has dodged a poisonous knife,” Sani said in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.

El-Rufai was alleged in a trending video on social media to have said that the Muslim-Muslim ticket in the Kaduna governorship election would be sustained beyond 20 years in the state.

In the video, the former governor, who spoke in Hausa, also claimed that Muslim domination was being replicated at the national level, and that the victory of President Bola Tinubu had silenced his critics, particularly the Christian Association of Nigeria.
