In a tweet on Wednesday,
Mr Kakanda called for the protection of the president from the novel
“Protect the President by all means. We can’t afford a repeat of the Yar’adua era in this critical time,” he said.
“The potential replacements are a breed of vultures I wouldn’t want to see in charge of Nigeria. And now isn’t the time to flee the country.”
His statement did not go down well with some Twitter users.
