It was a mammoth crowd at the Kaduna State APC secretariat that witnessed the formal declaration of Senator Uba Sani to contest for the office of Governor of Kaduna State in the 2023 elections. The atmosphere was electric and full of hope for a brighter future.
Addressing the crowd, which included political heavyweights in the state, Uba Sani pledged to sustain and build on the legacies of the present Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai whom he said has changed the face of Kaduna State. “He has redefined governance through his unprecedented infrastructural development and addressing the developmental challenges of the state. He has raised the bar of leadership and citizens cannot tolerate any lowering of the bar”.
He stressed that he was a key believer in El-Rufai’s philosophy of governance as I have understudied him for decades. I stand in good stead to sustain his legacy and extend the frontiers of good governance in our dear state. I am an achiever. I have demonstrated it in the National Assembly. I am passionate about the welfare and progress of the good people of Kaduna State.
With my declaration today, I have entered into a contract with the entire people of our strategic state. Respect, accountability, transparency and responsiveness shall define our relationship”.
He thanked the local government chairmen, State Assembly members and other top chieftains of APC who rode with him to the state secretariat of the party for his declaration, amid cheering by excited party supporters and citizens of Kaduna State. In appreciation of the great work that Kaduna State APC party executives and APC local Government Chairmen have been doing, he donated 59 cars to them to help facilitate their work and motivate them to prepare for the 2023 electoral battle.
He urged Kaduna State citizens and all APC supporters and well-wishers to join him on this journey of consolidation. “Power belongs to you. I will be your servant. I will be accountable to you” Your priorities shall be my priorities. We shall collectively build on the great works of our great leader Governor El-Rufai, as we strive to break new grounds.”
Senator Uba Sani is today a strong and effective voice for Kaduna State in the Senate and indeed a leading politician in the north. The Central Senatorial zone (1) which he represents consists of seven local governments namely; Birnin Gwari, Chikun, Giwa, Igabi, Kajuru, Kaduna North and Kaduna South.
