Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has cautioned President Bola Tinubu against accommodating French and United States, US, soldiers in Nigeria.

Sani urged Tinubu to properly fund Nigeria’s military to confront the country’s challenges.

Posting on X, Sani wrote: “The French forces and American troops evicted from Niger Republic must not be accommodated in our Nigerian soil.

“President Tinubu should fully equip and fund our Military and other security forces to confront our security challenges. This should be clear and simple.”

This is coming as some Northern leaders urged the Nigerian government not to allow the US and the French governments to relocate their military bases from the Sahel to Nigeria.

They warned that allowing the US and the French governments to carry out such a move posed danger to Nigeria.

They claimed that the US and the French governments have been lobbying Nigeria and other countries in the region, to sign new defence pacts allowing them to redeploy their expelled troops.
