…Sani has touched many life – beneficiary
Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
Senator Shehu Sani, a Senator representing Kaduna Central, has built and handed over an entrepreneurship centre worth over N10 million with equipment of different trades for women and youth in Rigasa, in Igabi local government area of Kaduna State, Nigeria.
Presenting the document of the building to the custodians, Senator Shehu Sani told the benefactors that he has fulfilled one of his campaign promises – to empower women and youths of Igabi local government.
According to him, “The entrepreneurship centre stands the best legacy a politician can give to his people.” While explaining that the centre is built to prepare women and youths to face the challenges of life, he said, “The idea is take our youths off the streets as well as disabuse their minds from being used by politicians as thugs.
“It’s meant to empower you. So, it is your duty to protect and utilise this place, because the best anybody can give you is to empower you to stand on your own.”
In his response, Vice Chairman Assembly of Izalatu-Tul Bida Wa Ikamatus-Sunna, Mohammed Sabitu Balarabe, said this is what they have been expecting from the politicians they voted into office in 2015, but none of them came back to appreciate their efforts, except Comrade Shehu Sani.
“We are happy to receive this wonderful gesture from you. We will stand by your side when the time comes, because you have shown us that you are trustworthy. We will continue to pray for you until God grants your heart desire in 2019,” Mohammed Balarabe said.
Also commenting during the commissioning, a member of the Rigasa community, Alhaji Kabir Haruna, said he was not surprised because he has been following Senator Shehu Sani’s philanthropic gesture around Kaduna State.
As he put it, “This is not the first, second, third or fourth. I can testify anywhere at any time that Shehu Sani has touched many lives in Kaduna Central and the entire State. We can only pray that God will help us to elect him back to the Senate, because that is the only way to reciprocate all his efforts towards the poor and downtrodden,” he said.
