Senator Shehu Sani Joins Governorship Race
Senator representing Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani, has vowed to make it impossible for terrorists to operate in the state if he becomes the governor come 2023.
Speaking in Abuja on Wednesday after picking expression of interest and nomination forms to vie for the governorship ticket of the PDP, he said Kaduna needs a leader that can lead the battle against bandits and terrorists who have laid siege there for a while.
Sani pointed out that the state had never been as divided as it is now under the Governor Nasir el-Rufai-led All Progressives Congress (APC), saying that only justice, equity and fairness could unite the people.
According to Sani, there is no terrorism and banditry in Kano and Jigawa because “the governments are proactive, wondering why Kaduna’s case is different.”
We can’t continue to fold our hands while the government is helpless. We must unite the people against terror,” he said, noting that Kaduna has never been more divided along religious lines that it is today.”
“Only justice, equity and fairness will unite the country. If governor’s formula was working, he could have united the people.”
The former lawmaker regretted that the Northwest has become a haven for terrorists, adding: “Our people sell their houses, farmlands to pay bandits. Where is government?”
Also speaking shortly after picking his forms, Ahmed Aminu Yar’Adua, alleged that the gains made by the PDP in Katsina State have been wiped away by the incompetence of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
