Abuja, Nigeria: The outspoken senator representing Kaduna central, Shehu Sani, has rhetorically said that the notorious Aso Rock rodents which the Presidency said ate President Muhammadu Buhari ‘s office (making him work from home) may have also eaten the report of the panel which probed former secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal, and director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke.
Oke was suspended after his agency claimed ownership of the monies discovered in an Ikoyi apartment, while Lawal was asked to step aside over his indictment for corruption by the senate committee on the humanitarian situation in the north-east.
The committee was chaired by Senator Sani, and a panel headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was subsequently set up to investigate the duo.The panel, which had as its members, Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, and Babagana Monguno, national security adviser, submitted its report to President Muhammadu Buhari on August 23.
More than one month after the submission, nothing has been heard, forcing Senator Shehu Sani to ask if, like President Muhammadu Buhari’s office, the panel report had also been left at the mercy of rodents.
“Maybe the hard copy of the Veepee’s report was eaten by rodents and the soft copy in the flash drive was damaged by virus,” Senator Shehu Sani tweeted on Friday.
Senator Shehu Sani, in another story, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari to be weary of Kaduna State State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai. All three belong to Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Senator Shehu Sani described the governor as a poisonous viper corrosive to the integrity and moral standing of the party in the state and the nation.
“The so-called endorsement of Governor el-Rufai by the Kaduna APC amounts to endorsement of toxic waste. El-Rufai simply gathered his employees, aides and hangers-on to endorse him. He is a poisonous viper corrosive to the integrity and moral standing of the party in the state and the nation.
“El-Rufai’s name dropping and mobilisation for Buhari 2019 is self-serving. His loyalty to Buhari is for political relevance and his allegiance to Buhari is for self protection and preservation.
“Now that President Buhari is back from medical vacation and the chances of becoming a Vice- President is zero, el-Rufai has taken up a new project for Buhari 2019. El-Rufai’s obsession with Buhari is not about Buhari but about himself. Buhari should protect his testicles from a man who always bend close to his knees.
“Those who endorsed el-Rufai are marketing a bottled fart. A man who boasts of sending (the late former President Umaru) Yar’Adua to his grave should not be trusted by Buhari. The snake that killed the hunter can kill the charmer,” he said.
Senator Sani and governor El-Rufai have been on political war path as they strive to gain the soul of Kaduna state.
