The outspoken senator representing Kaduna central, Senator Shehu Sani, has taken to his Instagram page to claim that former military president, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, indeed issued a statement telling President Muhammadu Buhari not to stand for re-election in 2019.
Recall that Babangida’s spokesman, Kassim Afegbua in a statement issued on Sunday, February 4, allegedly on behalf of the former president quoted him as saying that President Muhammadu Buhari should step aside after 2019.
In a tweet on Sunday, February 4, Senator Shehu Sani stated that the first version where Babangida allegedly asked President Buhari not to contest in 2019 was the real statement.
He tweeted: “The first statement carried the real message. The counter-statement was simply a phase in the drama.
“The message was fully delivered while the recipient and the audience were left in suspense. It’s a bullet shot with flowers.”
