Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district in Kaduna State, Senator Shehu Sani has said that it will be a tragedy if the recently constituted presidential reconciliation team headed by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, fails.
The Senator also hinted that an avalanche of defections is set to hit the governing All Progressives Congress should the committee fail to soothe frayed nerves in the shortest possible time, especially as 2019 beckons, stressing that it was the bringing of the committee to being that saved the day.
In an interview with Journalists at the APC national secretariat when he came to brief the party’s leadership on the crisis in Kaduna chapter, Senator Sani also said that it is pertinent that President Muhammadu Buhari makes his position clear as regards his ambition for 2019.
He said: “It is going to be a tragedy if he fails. This is what I know . The pronouncement appointing Asiwaju to reconcile members has averted the tragedy of people decamping from the APC to the other parties. It has been able to do so at least for now.
“One thing Nigerians refused to recognize is that people have the right to decide if they want the President to re-contest or not and he ałso has the right to accept or reject the decision of the people.
While calling on president Buhari to make his stance known, he added: “As far as I am concerned, any opinion on whether he should contest or not is simply an exercise of freedom of speech and is left for him to decide. However, in every consideration, he is constitutionally empowered to decide whether he wants to contest or not.
“But I think it is in the interest of the country and the interest of the party that President Buhari makes his position known because right now, it has been his Aides that are speaking on his behalf and whether they are doing it with his consent or not, no Nigerian for now knows whether President Buhari will contest or not.”
