Senator Shehu Sani (Kaduna Central) has warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) it will be difficult to seek for votes in 2019 if herdsmen killings in different parts of the country continue.
He stated any party that cannot guarantee peace and stability of a nation lacks the moral right to seek votes again.
Sani spoke at the 5th Development Summit of the Olalekan Olomide Platform for Development yesterday.
He called on the leadership of the party to urgently intensify effort in the various crises before it is too late.
“We must honestly admit that there are successes achieved by this administration but the mindless killings, violence and blood shedding in most states of the federation is mind boggling.
“If our party cannot guarantee the peace and stability, we factually have given up our moral right to ask people to vote for us into power again.”
He urged the South West region to speak with one voice and have a black and white agreement with the ruling party.
“The Southwest is the heartbeat of the APC and if by chance we suffered a stroke here, that is the end of the story.
“The region should put its house in order and have a written agreement with the ruling party that after supporting the party in 2019, it is the turn of the region.
“This is important because the political class is not gentlemen and they don’t respect a gentleman agreement.”
