Shehu Sani Calls APC “Egypt”, Buhari as “Pharaoh” [Update]
The Senator representing Kaduna Central Constituency of Kaduna State, Shehu Sani has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as “Egypt” as the lawmaker sets leave the party.
He also labelled the party as “the land of cruelty and injustice”
Senator Sani drew the analogy on his Twitter handle on the eve of the formation the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC).
He was ascribing to the ill treatment he and his fellow party members received despite being part of the founding and dues-paying members of APC.
Not done with that he qualified the party leader, President Muhammadu Buhari as “Pharaoh Thutmose”.
“We the persecuted are on Exodus, riding on horses, chariots and caravans, departing Pharaoh Thutmose’s Egypt.
“We are now at the coast of the Red Sea, about to leave the land of cruelty and injustice.”

He further spoke of other issues affecting the nation.
On the recovered monies from looters, he wrote:
“When the future generation asked the question what happened to the loot, they will read that it was recovered.
“And when they asked what happened to the recovered loot, they will read that it was shared to people known to people in power.”
Sani was, no doubt, ascribing to President Buhari-led government’s announcement to share the loot recovered from former dictator, General Sani Abacha to the poor.
More Nigerian have also criticised the move saying it is laying foundation for monumental fraud as Nigeria is suffering from several vices.
Some of the vices mentioned include poverty, bad roads for farmers to transport their harvest, no electricity for artisans to work, those willing to do business cannot because of infrastructural decay, small businesses are dying due to lack of enabling infrastructure for business, etc.
Senator Shehu Sani also paid glowing tribute to Mallam Adamu Ciroma who passed away today after brief illness.
“We lost a great Nigerian, a patriot and a man whose life exemplified honestly, simplicity and moral uprightness.
“Mallam Adamu Ciroma was a President we never had. He was an outstanding politician.”
Finally he congratulated to the Guardian Newspaper for its 35th birthday.
He said Guardian is a paper that has remained calm in times of turbulence and professional in times of sentiments and objective in times of partisanship, saying it stood by him in the years of the struggle.
He recounted that the Late Guardian publisher, Akex Ibru was appointed a minister under the military junta.
The paper, he said, refused to change its principles in the defense of liberty and democracy. It was shut and the publisher was sacked and shot.
“No patriotism is higher than that,” he intoned.
