Shehu Sani reacts as Nigerian govt says it’ll not expose sponsors of terrorism



The former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani, has insisted that the Nigerian government can’t absolve itself from the horror and tragedy Nigerians experience every day of their lives.


Sani said this while reacting to the statement of Femi Adesina, spokesman to President Muhammadu Buhari, on exposing sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.


Adesina had on Monday disclosed during an interview on Channels Television that the Federal Government is not interested in exposing sponsors of terrorism.


Last week, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) included six Nigerians on its terror list.


But when Adesina was asked if Buhari would comment on the issue of terrorism at the United Nations Assembly, following the naming of six Nigerians as “sponsors of terrorism” in UAE, Adesina said the Federal Government’s focus would be on the prosecution of suspects.


“Naming and shaming won’t be the motive. Rather, bringing malefactors to justice would be it. Nigeria is not interested in naming and shaming anybody. Rather, it wants to bring them to justice,” Adesina said.


Reacting to the development, Sani, in a tweet via his Twitter handle, said, “If the Nigerian Government can’t expose the sponsors of terrorism, then it can’t absolve itself from the horror and tragedy our people experience every day of their lives.”
