Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, has launched his re-election bid to the National Assembly on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
Sani, who quit the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the controversies which trailed the party’s primaries, named Monday Onyebuchi, a Kaduna-born Igbo man, as the director-general of his campaign.
“Today, I’m launching my bid for re-election to the senate to represent Kaduna Central as the flag bearer of the People’s Redemption Party PRP,” Sani told a crowd gathered at his Tudun Wada ward on Tuesday.
“I seek to represent you in order to remain your force for freedom and your voice for justice. I seek for your new mandate in order to continue to defend and project your interest.
“I appointed a Kaduna born and based Igbo man, Chief Monday Onyebuchi, as my Campaign DG.
“You have a choice in Kaduna central; to vote for me or to vote for a sit-in stooge who will be there to keep the seat for the Governor.
“You have been through the tunnel of horror, you must not end up into another one of tragedy. The ruling party has no enough stock of honour and justice to dispense even to its members not to talk of others. They will depend on the use of state resources to buy your votes and your conscience and use the state machinery to repress you, but you must remain firm to defend your votes.
“The future of your country is in your thumb. You either move to the promised land or remain in Egypt,” he said.
