Former Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has berated Northerners over their silence on the widespread killings and kidnappings that ravaged the country during the tenure of ex-president Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement posted on his verified X handle, Sani criticized the Northerners, who, because of ‘ethnic bias’, failed to criticize the Buhari-led administration but are spearheading the criticism of President Bola Tinubu’s administration because he “is not their kinsman.”
Sani, who noted that he was called “all sorts of names” for confirming the insecurity in the country, stated that “many of them kept quiet and condoned the bloodshed and kidnappings in the North for eight years.
“They called us all sorts of names in their efforts at defending failure. They ignored the corpses of their brothers and sisters and were more interested in defending their president.
“They were silent when about 63,111 people were killed; double that number were kidnapped, including 1,680 students.
“They lost their voice because the person at the helm then was their kinsman. They found their voice today because the person at the helm now is not their kinsman.”
