The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has said President Muhammadu Buhari will not know those who genuinely love him until he leaves office.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Sani said what politicians told Buhari or said about him in public was not the same as when they discussed in private.
According to the lawmaker, most members of the political elite only fear the President but do not love him.
The post read: “Baba (Buhari) will not know those who genuinely love him until someday when he is not in power. Then, he will sit down in his living room, balcony or garden; then, he will read comments and remarks by politicians he once thought meant what they said.
“Most of the political elite don’t love Baba, they simply fear him. They fear him because of his mass appeal among the poor and his ‘vindictiveness.’ What they say about him in public is not the same as what they say about him in private. They were silent and scheming when he was on health vacation (in London), now they are for Baba. (Only) Time will tell.”
