The Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani, on Wednesday in Abuja, joined the 2023 Kaduna State governorship race.
He expressed regrets that the state has been more divided on ethno-religious lines than it had ever been.
He, therefore, pledged to make insecurity in Kaduna State a thing of the past and to make the state inhabitable for terrorists if he emerges governor in next year’s elections.
Sani spoke after he obtained the N21m expression of interest and nomination forms to vie for the Kaduna State governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party at the national secretariat of the party in Wadata Plaza, Abuja.
Further expressing sadness over the ongoing killings in Kaduna, the former lawmaker stated that such occurrences were not mentioned in neighbouring states such as Jigawa and Kano because “the governments are proactive.”
He said, “We cannot continue to fold our arms while the government is helpless. We must unite the people against terror. Kaduna has never been more divided along religious lines than it is today.
“Only justice, equity and fairness will unite the country. If the governor’s formula was working, he could have united the people. Our people sell their houses, farmlands to pay bandits. Where is the government?”
