Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to the failure of President Donald Trump to concede defeat to Joe Biden, over a week after the US election was called.

Writing on Twitter, Sani said that Trump’s refusal to concede defeat is threatening democracy not just in America, but the world over.

“America has always been an exemplar for democracy and freedom,” the former lawmaker tweeted.

“The behavior of its leader not just threaten the moral standard of that country but gives tyrants in Africa and other parts of the World a justification to suffocate democracy. The events in America is of concern to us.”
