Senator Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker has described the situation of the people of Southern Kaduna under the leadership of APC in the state in the last eight years as that of “blacks in South Africa during the apartheid regime”.
He congratulated the people of Southern Kaduna for surviving the most difficult period of their existence in the hands of the APC-led administration of Nasir El-Rufai in the state, describing it as the hardest moment in the history of the people under any leader in the state.
Speaking as the chairman of a party organised by supporters of Senator Sunday Katung Marshal in Kaduna on Saturday, Sani said, “I am always so passionate about the people of Southern Kaduna because the area occupies a special place not only in Kaduna state but in Nigeria as a whole.”
He hailed the efforts of the people for standing their ground irrespective of any difficult situation to defend their ancestral land at all cost and their resolution to support PDP and its candidates in every election.
He enjoined the people to pray and support Senator Sunday Katung Marshal and other representatives from the area to succeed in their official assignments and ensure that they deliver their people from Egypt to the promised land.
The PDP gubernatorial candidate in the 2023 election in the state, Isa Ashiru, enjoined Senator Sunday Katung Marshal and other representatives from the zone to remain focused and deliver the people by doing all that is necessary to restore the good fortune of the area.
Senator Sunday Katung Marshal while responding, thanked the organisers of the programme, saying it was a challenge to him and other representatives from the area to deliver on their mandate and make life more meaningful to the people of the zone.
According to him, “I decided that I was going to commune with my brothers from the House of Representatives and State House of Assembly to ensure that we do an assessment of the Senatorial District to actually understand what the people really expect. That we have done, we have articulated it and all about security, with security, people will be able to carry out their businesses, go to farm and children go to school without any problem.”
