Former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has commended the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu for fixing his campaign in Imo and Anambra States on Mondays.
APC presidential flagbearer dared the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, by fixing his campaign rallies on a day the secessionist group observes a sit-at-home in the region.
Reacting, Shehu Sani, expressed confidence on the doggedness of Tinubu and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying the country needs leaders who can defy terrorists, bandits and separatists.
The PDP Chieftain who said Atiku and party supporters defied attacks in Kaduna State to hold a campaign rally, also called on other presidential candidates to emulate Tinubu and Atiku.
In a Facebook post, Sani wrote, “We defied violence and armed hoodlums and held Atiku’s rally in Kaduna. They attacked, injured and maimed but failed to stop us.
“Jagaban is defying IPOB’s Mondays sit-at-home with a scheduled rally in Anambra and Imo. Other presidential candidates must follow suit. We need leaders with the courage to defy forces of violence.
“Whoever wants to be a commander in chief must prove he can be a commander in chief. We need bold leaders who can stand up to terrorists, bandits and separatists”.
