Senator Uba Sani, the Kaduna gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has promised to build on the achievements of Governor Nasir El-Rufai.
Mr Sani, who represents Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, said this on Monday at a town hall meeting in Kafanchan, Jema’a council area.
The APC governorship flag bearer engaged with different groups at the meeting, including traders, farmers, women, youths, religious groups and trade unions.
He said building on the achievements of Mr El-Rufai’s administration in education, healthcare, agriculture, youth and women empowerment was necessary to ensure sustained development in Kaduna.
“We are all aware of the transformation that is going on in our dear state under the watch of El-Rufai. I will build on these developmental programmes to take our state to even greater heights,” said Mr Sani.
Mr Sani said his administration would prioritise projects that have a direct bearing on the people’s lives and said that his exploit at the senate had prepared him well for governing Kaduna.
“When running for office, it is important you show the people your achievements in the last public office you held. I have sponsored numerous bills and remain the only senator to have two bills passed and assented to by the president,” added the governorship candidate seeking to be governor.
He claimed that the same could not be said about my main rival candidates of the PDP and Labour Party, who were members of the National Assembly some years ago.
“The PDP and Labour Party candidates spent eight years and four years, respectively, in the Green Chamber without sponsoring a single bill,” stated Mr Sani.
On the issue of security, he said that the creation of state police and giving constitutional roles to traditional rulers was the only way out.
