In what could be interpreted as Senator Shehu Sani’s response to the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s recent change of slogan from ‘Change’ to ‘Progress’, Nigerians have thrown all sorts of jabs at him.
The Lawmaker from Kaduna state had taken to Twitter on Sunday to drop his two cents on the APC’s new slogan change. He wrote “A sellotape cannot conceal or cure a wound. Coloring the head of a vulture cannot turn it to an Eagle”, a comment that earned him series of backlash from some Nigerian Twitter users.
A sellotape cannot conceal or cure a wound.
Coloring the head of a vulture cannot turn it to an Eagle.

Many Nigerians on Twitter immediately attacked him for his comment, advising him to leave the party, if his ideologies no longer match that of APC. Some were even of the view that leaving APC was a more honourable thing to do, instead of staying bitter at everything the party does.
See what they wrote
You can not continue to be on the fence at this critical period. You either IN or OUT. Save yourself all the figures of speech. The Ship got a new Captain.
