June 12: Why you can’t fail – Shehu Sani tells Tinubu


Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has said President Bola Tinubu has a duty to succeed.

Sani said Tinubu’s failure means those who fought for democracy have nothing new to offer Nigeria.

He made this statement while speaking at a special dinner organised to mark Democracy Day at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja on Wednesday.

The former lawmaker also noted that national anthem alone cannot unite a nation.

Sani said only the ideals of freedom, justice, and equity can truly unite Nigeria.

According to Shehu: “Mr President, I will like to draw your attention to this fact and this truth, a national anthem cannot unite a nation, a national pledge cannot unite a nation, a constitution cannot unite a nation.

“A nation is united by the ideals of freedom, a nation is united by equity and by justice.

“This democracy was not a gift given to us by the military, it was not a lottery that we won, it was a product of struggle and sacrifice.

“Mr President, you have a duty to succeed. If you succeed, we will share your glory because you came from the trenches, you came from that struggle, you came from that period of struggle.

“Mr President, if you fail, they will say that those of you who fought for democracy have nothing new to offer Nigeria.”
