A former federal lawmaker from Kaduna state, Shehu Sani, on Wednesday, June 7, said President Bola Tinubu “dodged a poisonous knife” by bypassing a certain loyalist.

Sani, in a tweet via his verified Twitter handle, said President Tinubu was smart to have appointed George Akume and Femi Gbajabiamila as the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) and chief of staff (CoS), respectively.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain stated that had the president chosen a certain “Mr Over Sabi”, a seed of discord would have been sown between the new Nigerian leader and his vice, Kashim Shettima.

Sani wrote: “If Tinubu had appointed ‘Mr Over Sabi’ as SGF or Chief of Staff, he would have sown the seed of discord between the President and the Vice President, Speak and move around as more important than the two.

"Tinubu has dodged a poisonous knife.”
