Former Kaduna Central Senator Shehu Sani has warned presidential candidates and their followers to avoid making remarks that could inflame the political atmosphere.
Sani issued the warning on his Twitter page on Thursday.
He urged stakeholders to be mindful of the country’s charged and fragile situation, and he urged them to conduct their campaigns with decency, maturity, and a sense of responsibility.
He went on to say that invoking ethnic and religious sentiments will exacerbate the country’s dire situation.
“In light of this country’s delicate and inflammable state, candidates and their supporters should conduct their campaigns with decency, maturity, and a sense of responsibility,” he tweeted.
“Whipping up ethnic, sectarian, and religious feelings will only smolder the country they seek to lead.”
Some of the strong presidential candidates are Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), Prince Adewale Adebayo of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
