Kaduna Gov’ship Result Not Peoples’ Will – Shehu Sani

Former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, Shehu Sani has said the result of the just concluded governorship election in the state is not an expression of the peoples’ will but that of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He also alleged that the result is the wish of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Though not contesting in the election, Sani backed candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Isa Ashiru.

Recall that INEC had on Monday declared Uba Sani winner of the keenly contested poll.

He was declared the winner by the Returning Officer for Kaduna State by the Vice Chancellor of the Usman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, Prof Lawal Suleiman Bilbis.

Sani polled a total of 730,002 votes to defeat his closest rival, Isa Ashiru of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who polled 719,196 votes.

The Labour Party (LP) candidate, Jonathan Asake, came a distant third after polling 58,283 votes while the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) candidate, Suleiman Hunkuyi scored 21,405 votes.

Reacting, Sani said the PDP candidate will reveal next line of action soon.

He wrote: “Kaduna Governorship election; not expression of the people but of Kaduna APC & Kaduna inec consortium. We thank & appreciate the courage of those who rejected tyranny & gave us their untainted votes. The candidate will make public his next line of action as he deems. Thank you all”.— Senator Shehu Sani (@ShehuSani) March 21, 2023
