Former Kaduna senator, Shehu Sani, has mocked Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, for inviting President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to commission a road project in Port Harcourt.
Sani, on Wednesday, wrote on his verified Twitter handle that Wike’s desperation to get into the good books of the incoming president was the only reason that he decided to ground economic, social and educational activities in the state by declaring a public holiday and ordering the closure of shops and businesses for the visit of Tinubu.
“Furthermore, all shops and business premises along Rumuola to Rumuokwuta roads in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the State shall remain closed from 8.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. on Wednesday, 3rd May 2023.
“I urge all labour unions and security agencies to comply with this closure order.”
But while reacting to the announcement, Sani said the action was a “mark of desperation for favour and accommodation.”
“Commissioning a project is a mark of a great achievement. Kudos,” Sani wrote.
“But grounding the economic, social and educational activities of the state for that purpose is a mark of desperation for favour and accommodation by a lickspittle. Tinubu can say no to that or else it becomes the norm,” he added.
