    • nana okosi

      He will outlive tinubu and his cohorts in APC fanning the embers of hatred against the man-

  • Zuby4Real…

    Tukur should stop forming Goliath. Park your things and go. Na by force….

    • bimbop

      PDP is just wasting time with tukur-he is not the trouble of the party-rather the problem with the party is that they shake any time the opposition call for the removal of an individual–APC also have their internal troubles.. is buhari not working with the Akande he jailed over a case of corruption

  • Bala R

    Even if Tukur goes.

    Premium Times, Shema is the governor of Katsina and not Kaduna. Governor Yero is that of Kaduna. In other climes leaders bow out if not for anything, for peace and common sense. Hope our leaders can take a queue from that. As much as we admire wealth of experience, no human being is indispensable.

    • Tonnero

      Correction….cue nor queue.
