Luther King award: What Buhari should have done – Senator Sani


Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central, has reacted to the controversies surrounding the award reportedly presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the members of Martin Luther King’s family.

The family of the great black American human rights activist had visited Buhari at the Presidential Villa after which the presidency declared, “President @MBuhari today at the State House received Martin Luther King Jnr’s family.

“He was also conferred with the 1st Black History Month National Black Excellence and Exceptional African Leadership Award 2018. #AsoVillaToday.”

However, the children of Martin Luther King and the King Center came out to deny issuing the any award to Buhari.

Reacting to the development, the Senator advised Buhari to be more careful next time to know what he’s being issued.

He twitted, “Next time they bring a box of award to Baba in the dark, he should first light up a lamp in case there’s outage and then open the box to see what’s inside.

“A pebble look like a Diamond in the dark.”
