In response, Sani released a statement asserting that Shettima had done nothing wrong.

He pointed out that Senate President Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan had also contested the presidential election while concurrently seeking re-election to represent Yobe North Senatorial District, which he successfully won.

Sani further mentioned the example of former Akwa Ibom state governor Godswill Akpabio, who similarly ran for the presidency alongside seeking another office.

Sani expressed confidence that the Supreme Court would not rule against Shettima’s double nomination, highlighting the principle that what was acceptable for Lawan and Akpabio should also apply to Shettima.
