Senator Shehu Sani has indicated his interest to join the Kaduna State Governorship race in 2023.
The lawmaker, who represented Kaduna Central between 2015 and 2019, disclosed this during an interview on Invicta FM, a radio station.
In a veiled reference to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, he said anyone who insults and embarrasses the people is not worth being in power because respecting human being is very important in religion.
He said it’s left for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to unite its members to ensure that they form a government that will respect the will of the poor in Kaduna.
“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 for 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 a 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.
He added that as a contestant he doesn’t have money to share to delegates to vote for him, warning the people that money politics is what brought the country into “the mess under the ruling party”.
He said if the masses decide to vote for him, with or without money, he would win.
