Senator Shehu Sani representing the Kaduna Central Senatorial district has taken to his twitter handle to express his dissatisfaction about the declaration of support for the Presidency of Atiku Abubakar by the Minister for Women Affairs; Mrs. Aisha Alhassan.
Alhassan publicly declared her support for her political godfather, Abubakar Atiku should the latter decide to run for the office of the president in 2019 despite being a minister in Buhari’s cabinet. After this declaration, several members of the APC have accused Alhassan of being disloyal to President Buhari. In light of these events, Senator Sani has thus had his say via his social media account.
He has implied that no president can have appointees that would show the office of the president or the country 100% loyalty. This is because these appointments are made not because of merit but they are based on the recommendations of governor’s or godfathers, thus it is natural for the appointees to show loyalty to the individual that recommended them to the president who merely confirmed their appointment.
“If the President wants 100% loyalty and service, he should appoint people based on their individual merit who will work for the country. However, if he does appoint anyone based on merits, the politicians will say that “we do not know this alien that you have appointed”
