Sen. Shehu Sani, a former Senator from Kaduna Central, revealed in an interview with TVC that he first met President Tinubu in Chief MKO Abiola’s crib when they were both fighting for the June 12 cause. He also stated that he holds Tinubu in high regard because they have a long history and a personal bond.
He stated that if President Tinubu invites him to join his administration, he will decline because he believes there are others who are more capable and would be better at guiding the people.
According to him: “Well, first of all, my relationship with Asiwaju didn’t start with the PDP or the APC. It had its roots in the fight for June 12th. I think the first time I met him was at Chief MKO Abiola’s house during the fight to revive June 12 in the 1993 election. The second time was when I got out of jail after Babangida jailed us for calling for the ouster of his government while I was the campaign vice leader.” Democracy and Deco was the campaign leader for democracy.
And in 1999 I joined the Alliance for Democracy and ran for Senate in 2003 which I lost and he supported me then but in Kaduna we couldn’t make much headway under the AD. And then we came together under APC, from ACN to APC, and right now I felt like we had a personal relationship and history.
