Senator Shehu Sani has thrown shade at governors who run off to the nation’s capital and lodge in comfort while their states are on fire.

Channels TV reports that Sani said this in a tweet on Monday that these governors spend days in Abuja all in the name of meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said the governors spend Monday to Thursday in the FCT and on Friday they head to the mosques to pray with the president while their states are on fire.

He accused the current political class and governing elites in Nigeria for placing more emphasis on political power than the lives of the common people.

Sani in a series of tweets on Monday opined that pampering power rather than questioning it is always tragic.

He said, “Political power is more important to the Governing elites and the Political class than the lives of the common people. The consequences of petting and pampering power when it should be consciously questioned and charged is always tragic.”

He further stressed that “a nation has lost its soul and humanity when it only has to take a public outrage, rebuke, and objection for its Leaders to respond to the tragedy of its people”.
