Threatening Foreigners With Body Bag Is Facism -Shehu Sani


The senator representing Kaduna Central District at the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has condemned the threat by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, to deal with foreigners who intervene in Nigeria’s electoral process.
El-Rufai had warned foreign election observers that if they intervened in the elections, they would be returned to their various countries in body bags.
The statement, uttered during a media appearance on an NTA programme, drew criticisms from Nigerians and the opposition parties to el-Rufai.
Taking to his verified Twitter handle @ShehuSaniyesterday, Sani, a critic of the controversial governor had tweeted: “Threatening foreigners with Body Bags is not nationalism or patriotism, it’s fascism. They simply want to switch off the lights, close the windows and the doors and count our votes. They are watering the flowers of our democracy with kerosene.”
