3 mins read

Former Nigerian Senator, Shehu Sani, has criticised the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) seemingly conflicting positions on issues of governance and ongoing election dispute.

Sani’s statement came as the PDP continues to contest the 2023 election results that saw President Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerge as the winner. Sani’s remarks focused on the party’s recent decision to endorse the appointment of Nyesom Wike as the new Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister, raising questions about the party’s consistency and its ongoing legal battles.

“If the PDP has approved and endorsed its members joining the Government, then it has no business being in Court.” he tweeted on Tueday.

Shehu Sani’s Twitter statement emphasized the apparent contradiction between the party’s pursuit of legal remedies and its participation in government appointments.

Sani’s words, while succinct, cut straight to the heart of the matter, forcing the PDP to address the delicate balance it is attempting to maintain between its judicial contestation of the election results and its willingness to collaborate with the ruling government through appointments.

Political analysts have weighed in on the statement, highlighting the complex political landscape in which the PDP now finds itself. The party’s internal divisions, including differing opinions on whether to continue the legal battle or to focus on engagement with the government, have been brought to the forefront by Sani’s pointed remarks.

As the PDP navigates this challenging situation, it remains to be seen how the party’s leadership will respond to Shehu Sani’s criticism and whether any internal adjustments will be made to address the perceived inconsistency.
