Shehu Sani, a former legislator in the National Assembly who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District, has expressed interest in running for governor in 2023.

This was revealed by the legislator during a radio broadcast in Kaduna on Saturday.

Sani said he was joining the contest to get the state out of the mess that Governor Nasir el-Rufai had created.

The congressman said he was running on the Peoples Democratic Party’s platform, and that it was up to the party to unite its members in order to build a government that would respect the poor’s wishes in Kaduna State.

He said, “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 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 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.”

The lawmaker said as a contestant he doesn’t have money to share to delegates to vote for him, warning that money politics was what brought the country into “mess under the ruling party”.

He said if the masses decided to vote for him, with or without money, he would win.
