He said “Let me say at this stage that mere appeal to ethnic and regional arithmetic will not give back to the PDP what they lost. They seem to be making a dangerous calculation with their recent outbursts."

Shehu said “The governor’s outbursts are intended to be a trigger for a clash between communities in areas where deliberate attempts had in the past also been made by the PDP to stoke ethnic and religious fault-lines."

“Our appeal to Nigerians is that they should ignore these tantrums. President Buhari is a healer not a divider,”  he added.
