Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, says most governors spend weekdays in Abuja in the name of meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari while their states are in flames.
The senator took to his Twitter account on Monday evening to accuse some Nigerian governors of abandoning their states for Abuja in the spate of the killings and attacks on vulnerable citizens across the country.
The lawmaker added that these governors spend Monday to Thursday in Abuja while on Friday they head to the mosques to pray with the president while their states are in flames.
“While their states are in flames, most of the Governors spent Mondays to Thursdays in Abuja in the name of meeting with Mr President. And on Fridays, praying with Mr President in the Villa mosques,” the senator tweeted.
The legislator had earlier stated that the unrest across the country stemmed from situations in which the political class and governing elites place more emphasis on political power than the lives of the common people.
“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,” Sani wrote.
The lawmaker had in March tackled Babatunde Fashola, minister of power, works and housing, after the latter alleged that some states in the country now enjoy almost 24 hours of electricity supply.
