Shehu Sani, the former Nigerian senator, who represented the Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly has lamented the ongoing killings in Southern Kaduna.
Sani, who made this known on Friday on his verified Twitter handle, said people are living at the mercy of terrorists, noting that there is so much blood being shed.
Sani hinted that the question of survival is not about who is safe but who is next.
He recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to leave behind a more secure country, stressing that they are praying for magic.
He tweeted: “The killings continue in Southern Kaduna. People live at the mercy of terrorists. So much blood and tears.
“The question of survival is not about who is safe but who is next. The president has promised to leave behind a more secured country; we are praying for this magic.”
Sani had earlier stated that the current administration needed to defeat insurgency and end all forms of terrorism for the President to enjoy his retirement.
Sani said this in a reaction to the President’s statement that he was looking forward to 2023 when he would hand over power to a new president and return to tending to his farm.
“I look forward to the year 2023 when I finish and I go (back) home to take charge of my farm. Between now and that time, I will do the best that is possible to advance the interest of the nation and its people, and carry out my duties as prescribed by the constitution,” Buhari had said in Istanbul, Turkey, after a surprise birthday event was held in his honour.
While the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, had on December 22 said that the President will live in Kaduna after the end of his tenure in 2023.
However, the former lawmaker on his Twitter handle affirmed that it was important for the President to tackle challenges bordering on insecurity if he plans to retire and settle in Kaduna.
“Bandits killed 1,192 and kidnapped over three thousand in Kaduna last year alone, outpaced the number of people killed and abducted in Yemen and Libya. If this is the state the president wants to retire and settle, he must secure it first,” Sani had earlier said.
