Senator Shehu Sani has lambasted seven governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for asking President Muhammadu Buhari to re-contest in 2019. The Senator representing Kaduna Central who is an influential chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Shehu Sani, has taken to his Twitter page and lambasted seven governors from his party, for asking President Muhammadu Buhari to contest for the President in 2019 despite the killings going on in several parts of the country.

Recall that APC governors, Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Abubakar Bello (Niger), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Ibrahim Geidam (Yobe) and Jibrilla Bindow (Adamawa), had on Friday, visited the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja asking him to seek re-election in 2019. This came barely 24 hours after 73 persons killed by suspected herdsmen in Benue were buried.
In a swift reaction, the senator took to his verified Twitter handle to condemn the governors’ endorsement, describing it as unfortunate.
“Seven governors in the Villa asking President Buhari to run at this material time when all hands should be on deck to advise or support him to end the mindless bloodletting and carnage in the country is most unfortunate. Human reasoning and human conscience where art thou?,”
he said.
 Governor El-Rufai had told journalists after the meeting at the villa that they (the governors) wanted the President to contest the 2019 election.
He said:
"They have no apologies for that.  We believe in Mr. President, we want him to continue running the country in the right direction.
"People can speculate about 2019; we have no apologies,”
El-Rufai had said. He added that the governors, mostly first termers, were interested in “continuity and stability”.

Thank you. This proves that even when everyone is going mad, there are still some sane people.
