Uba Sani Joins Kaduna Governorship Race
The lawmaker, who was a special adviser on political matters to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, declared his interest at the Kaduna Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.
Sani said that if elected, he would consolidate the achievements and legacies of El-Rufai “and take them to higher levels for the collective good and the best interest of the good people of Kaduna state”.
He said, “Our dynamic Governor has changed the face of Kaduna State and made it the envy of all. His transformational leadership and developmental drive has redefined and raised the bar of governance. The high standards he has set are both a source of pride and a challenge to we his associates and loyalists.
“The huge challenge before us is how to sustain and build on Mallam El-Rufai’s legacy of outstanding public service and impact. This is because a reversal of these gains in the post-2023 era will be a huge tragedy.
“Our people have witnessed selfless and impactful leadership and cannot settle for anything less. It is for this reason that I am humbly stepping forward to carry the banner of continuity. I am Mallam El-Rufai’s understudy. I have worked closely with him. I understand his vision and mission. I stand in good stead to sustain his vision and mission.
“As our beloved Governor prepares to gloriously depart the office in May 2023, the onus is on us all to continue and consolidate his achievements and legacy. And as the popular saying goes, you can not coach football if you were not a footballer yourself. It is only fair and natural that we have someone who understands the El – Rufai philosophy; one who has carefully understudied him; a person who has been in the trenches with him, to continue from where he will stop on May 29, 2023.
“It is on this score, Mr. Chairman, that I, Senator Uba Sani, is formally declaring today, my intention to seek to contest the gubernatorial primaries of our great party, the APC and indeed the main election in 2023 to succeed my leader and mentor, Mallam Nasir el Rufa’i as the next Governor of Kaduna State.”
KanyiDaily recalls that a former Senator representing Kaduna central, Shehu Sani had also announced his intention to contest in the 2023 governorship election in Kaduna state.
