by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
Senator Shehu Sani, the Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate has indicated interest to contest the 2023 Governorship elections In Kaduna State.
Sani, who disclosed this in a Radio interview programme Saturday in Kaduna said he is vying for 2023 Governorship to “rescue the state and clean up the mess created by Governor Nasir El-Rufai,” if elected.
Senator Sani said he is throwing his hat in the ring on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, saying it’s left for the party to unite its members to form a government that will respect the will of the poor in Kaduna State.
He said, “We sat with my loyalists and supporters and they wanted me to contest the governor of Kaduna State, which I will do to remove APC, God willing; to remove anointed candidate of the state governor and to enter Government House where comrade will be sworn in as the next governor that will bring changes that will clean all the dirt they brought in the state in the name of development.
“I will bring security. This is what my supporters wanted, and I trust them. So, I will contest the governorship seat under the PDP. Therefore, I call on the people of Kaduna to support and collaborate with me.
“I also solicit their prayers; I need the prayers of religious leaders, marketers, physically-challenged, women and youths. You voted for Malam as governor, what remains now is to have a comrade as governor so as to see the difference between us.
“You must reject the anointed candidate of those who demolished your houses. Support us to see how we form a government that respects the will of the poor in the state,” he said. The Senator explained that, as a contestant, he doesn’t have money to share to delegates to vote for him, warning that money politics was what brought the country into the “mess under the ruling party,” he asserted, while affirming that, if the masses decided to vote for him, with or without money, he will win.
