Former Kaduna federal lawmaker, Shehu Sani has warned Nigerians against electing a wrong leader that would put the country in another four years of darkness.
Sani urged the electorates to allow their conscience and experience to guard them in choosing the next president.
Speaking via his verified Twitter page on Tuesday, the former lawmaker warned Nigerians not to get deceived by the religious leaders in the country.
He wrote, “On Saturday, this country has a date with history. Don’t vote for a candidate because your mosques or churches asked you to do so. Be guided by your conscience and experience & elect a competent leader. A wrong choice is another 4 years of a journey into darkness.”

Meanwhile, Sani has said the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, is taking a political gamble by not declaring his preferred presidential candidate.
Sani stated this during an appearance on the 2023 Verdict, a special programme on Channels Television on Wednesday.
The former lawmaker stated that Wike does not have the capacity to determine who people should vote for during the election.
He, however, described Wike as an exceptional man that has made a lot of sacrifices for the PDP and he has committed a lot of resources to the development of the party.
He said: “If you contest an election, especially the primary, and lose, it is incumbent on you as a responsible party member to support the candidate of your party.
“Wike is an exceptional man that has made a lot of sacrifices for the party and he has never left the party he has committed a lot of resources and has a lot of supporters all over the country but where does he take them to?
“There are people who are loyal to the party and will tell them at the presidential level vote for A and at the governorship level vote for B.
“Wike is taking a serious gamble. I think that Nigeria has reached a political level where a governor of a state cannot determine the people who they should vote for. At this hour, the people of this country have decided on who they should vote for.”
