Buhari is no longer popular – Shehu Sani


Fiery Kaduna state senator Shehu Sani has come down heavily on the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari saying the Nigerian leader is no longer as popular as he was before given the lackluster performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.


The senator while reacting to the president’s New Year day broadcast where he referred to Nigerians as “impatient people” said he disagreed with the president’s submission especially as regards the masses who have demonstrated an unprecedented level of support and patience with his administration.


“The love of the masses for the President is beyond the usual and even stretched to hypnosis. The President is not as popular as he used to be but still command an appreciable cult follower-ship among the poor.


“The poor still see him as their messiah. They endure all pains and hardships and see it as sacrifice. They denounce his critics even when they are right, they applaud the President even when he’s wrong. In the heart of many of his followers, he’s raised to a saintly, angelic and infallible mortal.


“Until recently, the fanaticism of the President supporters in some parts of the country has created a tyrannical atmosphere of fear and of silence, we have an institutionalized intolerance to contrary opinions.


“When the President went on long health vacation, they prayed and never protested they even CHASED CHARLEY and could have CHOCKED him if he stayed. PMB is the only President in history that can whip people with ‘koboko’ and they will smile and thank him for the lashes.


“The masses are patient and love for the President is the power of their patience,” he concluded.
