Senator Shehu Sani in a post he shared on his Facebook page this morning, described the political elites pressurizing President Buhari to run for a second term as pressure cookers who see Buhari as a meal and mill. Sani says the political elites see President Buhari as the lifebuoy for their political survival and relevance. Read what he wrote below
Whether Baba will seek reelection or not remains his individual decision to make.He is old enough and has been in politics and government longer than anyone in his party or cabinet as to know what to do and the right time to do it.He is the best person to judge and decide for himself what to do.The nation still needs his services but it’s still up to him to decide if he is willing and fit to provide more or not.The political elite in habit of applying pressure are pressure cookers and they see Baba as a meal and a mill.
Baba is like a good driver who has driven for along distance and so much cherished by his passengers, whether he is willing to cover more distance its best decided by him. Every leader chooses his seat and space in the ship of his and his country’s history.
The reasons the masses want Baba continue is not The same as with the reason the elite want Baba to seek reelection .The former see him as a good force who should continue to lead them to the land of their dreams or the promised land;the later see him as the lifebuoy for their political survival and relevance.
