Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, has asked those criticising the rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto state to rent a crowd for their campaign in Sudan.
He said this after Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, alleged that the PDP rented supporters from Niger Republic for the launch of its campaign in Sokoto on Monday.
Sani said if the PDP rented its supporters from Niger because of proximity, opponents of the party should resort to Sudan because of “affinity”.
“They rent theirs from Niger because of proximity; You can rent yours from Sudan because of affinity,” he tweeted.
They rent theirs from Niger because of proximity ;You can rent yours from Sudan because of affinity.

The senator has been at loggerheads with el-rufai over the primary election of APC in the state. The governor opposed Sani’s senatorial bid.
Sani’s advice to the governor, who is a close ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, maybe connected with the rumour that the president has been replaced by one Jubril from Sudan after he died in London.
But the president denied the allegation while speaking with some Nigerians in Poland where he attended a climate change summit.
