Senator Shehu Sani has drawn angry reactions from many by implying that the recent intimidation of opposition members by the current administration is a payback of such intimidation the opposition received from the ruling party in the build up to the 2015 general elections.
The President Muhammadu Buhari led government has been accused of using government apparatus to intimidate oppositions, most recent being the freezing of Peter Obi and family members bank account and the visit of EFCC to Doyin Okukpe’s house.
The Kaduna Central Senator however, has the statement below to say about the development
“In the run up to 2015 elections, the then government used the apparatus of the state to intimidate members of the then opposition led by PMB. Its sad now that history is repeating itself; the fangs, the claws & the venom of the state is ‘progressively’ unleashed on the opposition,” Sani said.
Many of his followers who disagree with him on the statement did not hesitate to pour their displeasure.
Deji Adeyanju: It’s not true nobody intimidation APC in 2015.
Okpanefe: How precisely were they intimidated? Jonathan was the most insulted president no one went to jail he lost elections and didn’t contest results. APC campaigned freely. Can we say that today? We know the govt is bad. Tweet like this justifies their evil.
Femi O. Oyedepo: Mr Sen Afro; could you be specific about those intimidations @GEJonathan used to intimidate @MBuhari?
#Homorthayo: @GEJonathan never intimidated the opposition.. Pls get ur facts right… God bless Goodluck Jonathan and his entire generation.
Chidiebere Johnson: And sir, it’s unfortunate that you are still supporting buhari, despite all these observations. Come out clean. Speak against it as you doing and declare your support for @atiku.
Ali Abdulhakeem Aroba: God forbid, remain white like you are, condemn anybody and commend anybody accordingly. That’s true leadership, patriotism and loyalty to one’s conscience for those who have one.
