The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has condemned recent killings across the country, observing that it is unfortunate Nigeria is fast becoming a nation “where lives are no longer cherished.”
The Lawmaker stated this in a statement on Saturday following killings in Zamfara and other parts of the nation.
He stated that “tragedy is gradually becoming a daily routine in Nigeria,” noting that such situation may lead to a scenario where we would have more flow of blood than water and petrol in the country.
“We have become a nation in perpetual mourning and ceaseless funeral mass. In Nigeria today, blood is becoming cheaper than water and petrol. The most tragic of all tragedies is when tragedy becomes a routine in our daily lives,” Sani said in the statement.
Frowning at the increasing rate of blood letting in the country, the Senator faulted governors for frequenting the Aso Rock Villa, each time crisis occur in their states, describing such act as a ‘sycophantic culture’.
The Senator urged Buhari to ban such visits by state governors to enable them properly monitor activities in their respective states whenever crisis breaks out.
He added: “The new sycophantic political culture of Governors leaving their duty posts, in their respective states, almost on a daily basis to climb the Rock of Aso in order to pledge loyalty, leave their citizens in the hands of moribund and powerless deputy governors and at the mercy of well-armed killers.
“President Buhari must ban state Governors from the daily ritual of visiting the villa while their homes burn.”
