The senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial zone, Senator Shehu Sani, has contradicted statement by Special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, that the demands of protesters that President Muhammadu Buhari “resumes or resigns” are not known to Nigeria’s laws.
Senator Shehu Sani, weighing in on the protest, said that the protesters have the constitutional and fundamental right to protest.
He however, explained that the absence of the President has been contained as he properly handed over to the vice president Yemi Osinbajo.
Sen. Sani’s who made the statement via a post on Facebook further called on Nigerians to pray for the speedy recovery of Buhari.
The Facebook post read, “Those protesting for the President to resume or resign have the constitutional and fundamental rights to do so. But the President had properly handed over power to the acting president before he travelled on Medical vacation.
“I fully respect the rights of protesters to object but I appeal to them to step down their placard and pick up a prayer book for our president.
“He has given so much and sacrificed so much for our country and this is the time to stand by him when it’s telling on his health. For a man who has given the better part of his life for our unity and for our progress, it’s not much if we show him love, care and understanding in his trying moments.
