The Chairman, Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Dept, Senator ShehuSani has finally open up to who he referred to the Lion king, the Hyenas and the Jackals in a facebook post he made in July, 2017.
Senator Sani who represents Kaduna central at the National Assembly under the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) had in his posting observed that the jackals and hyenas were in the absence of the lion who is sleeping tramping on the weaker animals in the belief that the lion would not come back. He said that it was the prayer of the weaker animals that the lion should come back soon.
A post that made President Muhammadu Buhari’s Wife, Aisha Buhari to responded metaphorically to the posting saying: “God has answered the prayers of the weaker animals. The hyenas and the jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom. We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals.”
Speaking to Journalists in Kaduna, Senator Sani explained that “everybody knows who the Lion is. As regarding the Hyenas, Jackals and wolves, I think I will leave that for Mr. President to mention them.”
“But in general terms, these are the elements within the cycle of presidency that have personal interest other than that of Mr. President.
“And they are called in broader sense as cabal. And it is not only that you can replace them. These are the mafias that exist within presidency.
“Like I said, their intent is different from that of president himself but they are part of what is called presidency. One thing the President need to do which is very important is a need for him to take a pro active stand in order to reset his presidency by looking at his cabinet in totality.
“Those who have failed should be shown the way out and those who have not been able to perform satisfactorily should be replaced or reshuffled.
“But it is time for Mr. President to throw some people out of his cabinet and change the portfolio of some of them so they can help him to perform better.
“There is mid-term fatigue that exists and the only way out is to bring in capable hands. If the first appointment into office was to appease the political interest, I think the president now should appoint those who are capable of delivering the mission, the vision and the programme of his own administration.
“There is a message I’m sending to Mr. President to fumigate and disinfect presidency in the general interest if his own government and also the country as a whole,” he said.
