In a recent public event where there were many dignitaries including the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad and Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwoolu, a video surfaced where the Sultan deliberately shunned Gov Sanwoolu while trying to pay homage to the first class traditional ruler.
The Sultan avoided pleasantries from him while he openly greeted others that came to pay homage to him. The Sultan’s action may be connected to the recent signing of the controversial VAT anti grazing bills into law.
Many Northern leaders are miffed with the signing of the bill into law by Gov Wike of Rivers state and Sanwoolu followed suit
Many northern leaders frowned at the action of the two governors of the two states that contributed largely to the VAT pool. The signing of the bills will put the Northern region in a financial distress and at a disadvantaged position
