Barely two weeks after he assumed office, former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has expressed satisfaction with the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu so far.
The non-serving senator said the president has started on a good footing and has demonstrated civility especially in giving listening ears to people.
Sani stated this when he appeared on the Channels Television programme “Politics Today” yesterday.
According to him, given critical observation and consultations with individuals and groups, he was satisfied with the administration for now.
Going ahead, he however said that the president must arrest insecurity and growing violent attacks while handling the fragile economic situation of the country.
To address these, Sani said Tinubu should seek wise counsel in appointing leaders of security agencies and constitute a knowledgeable economic team.
He said, “First of all, I can see that he has started on a good footing in the sense that he has proven to be a president first of all as a civil servant and also gives a listening ear to people. From what we can see from distance and consulting individuals and groups, I think he has started right, I am satisfied with the level of consultation for now.”
He said what the President has to do is to get people that are competent and capable, to man the position of authority as he pilots the ship of state to the future. “ He also needs to set an immediate priority of what he needs to address and as far as Nigeria is concerned, first is security and the second is economy, these two are very important,” he added

Gov Alia Storms Site of Collapsed Building, Blasts Dunamis Leadership
The Governor of Benue State, Fr Hayicnth Alia, has slammed the leadership of the Dunamis International gospel centre for erecting a substandard structure.
DAILY POST reports that the church caved in the early hours of Tuesday, killing the resident pastor, Ahmed Sunday and injuring others.
Speaking when he visited the site, the Governor expressed disappointment that he did not meet any of the leaders of the church on the ground.
He said the building was poorly constructed and would be revoked.
He said the leader of the church should know the law.
“We have to locate where the leadership of the church is and to inform them that the land has been revoked because we have to save lives.
“Those living along the waterways would vacate immediately.
“So the Ministry of Works, Housing and Urban Development should step in.
“I need to know who approved this structure. We need to know the engineers or the architects who monitored this gigantic project.
“We need to stop these from happening.”
