Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, says corruption used to be hosted under the umbrella but has now been swept beneath the carpet.
Umbrella and broom are the symbols of the two major parties in the country – the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Reacting to the reinstatement of Abdulrasheed Maina, ex-chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, into the civil service, Shehu described corruption as a cat with nine lives, resurfacing with each administration.
“Corruption has become a cat with nine lives.It used to be hosted under the shade of an umbrella now it’s swept under the carpet,” the tweet read.
A member of the ruling party, this is the second time in four days that Sani would taunt the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Reacting to the federal government’s directive to all relevant agencies to compile the names of “looters”, Sani said the list should not be limited to “Umbrella United players but will include those in the Broomers FC and ‘Paris Saint Germain’ and Dynamo Cabal FC players.”
He made the comment On Saturday.
