Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna central has warned Nigerians against demonizing former president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s statement and advice to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Obasanjo in a lengthy statement on Tuesday told President Buhari to forget seeking re-election in 2019.
But reacting, Senator Sani on his Twitter page wondered why people who were rejoicing when Obasanjo fired missiles at the National Assembly and called its members unarmed robbers are no longer at ease with his current statement.
He wrote, “When Baba fired missiles to the National Assembly and called its members unarmed robbers you celebrated him; today his missiles landed on the Rock of Aso and you want to demonize him.
“We need to remind those who used to say look at the message and not the messenger, to look at the message and not the messenger; so that they don’t forget their piece of advice and start looking at the messenger instead of the message.”
