A former Nigerian senator Representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has reacted to a photo of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, sleeping during the National Peace Committee meeting.
Premium Politics had earlier reported that the National Peace Committee under the leadership of General Abdulsalami Abubakar held a meeting for all 2023 presidential candidates and party leaders on Friday.
The meeting, which was organized to ensure the proper conduct of the candidates, their parties, and other stakeholders, especially during the campaigns ahead of the elections, was attended by the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore; the vice presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ifeanyi Okowa; and New Nigeria Peoples Party, Bishop Isaac Idahosa.
After the meeting, Sowore shared a tweet revealing Tinubu sleeping during the meeting, claiming that he made no contribution as his party chairman spoke on his behalf throughout.
Reacting to the development, Sani, via his Twitter handle, stated that it is not all the time when people close their eyes that they are sleeping or taking a nap.
He claimed that closing one’s eyes might either be for prayers or some philosophical thoughts and the former governor of Lagos state might be doing the latter.
He wrote, When someone closes his eyes it’s not just for sleeping or napping. It might be for prayers or philosophical thinking. Asiwaju may be doing the latter.
