The senator-elect for Kaduna Central, Uba Sani, has promised that the elected representatives of the people at both the national and state Houses of Assembly will never let down the people of the state, pledging that “we will keep the trust of Kaduna People.”
Speaking with journalists shortly after Mallam Nasir El Rufai was declared governor of Kaduna state, Mr. Sani, who was a former Special Assistant to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo on Public communications, said the election of Governor Nasir Elrufai at Saturday’s election was “one of the most spectacular events in the history of the state.”
According to him, “I said that I would delay my celebration as Senator-elect until our indefatigable Governor and the architect of the accelerated reworking of modern day Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai got re-elected by our good people.
“Today, I can truly celebrate for my joy is now complete with the affirmation by INEC of the huge votes you gave Mallam Nasir El Rufai to re-elect him the Governor of our beloved State of Kaduna.
“I am truly grateful to Almighty Allah and the good people of our State for this victory. Like anyone can attest to, our victory today and even two weeks ago did not come easy.
“Agents of change and transformational leaders all over the world, sometimes, have to travel tortuous paths to truly achieve the liberation and emancipation of a people they love so much.
“The people of Kaduna State have again spoken all too loudly that they endorse our policies and programmes to take them to the next level,” he said.
He assured the people that government will not take their love or the confidence they have reposed in them for granted.
“We have earned your trust and we intend to keep it. Kaduna shall remain home to all law-abiding citizens irrespective of creed, religion, ethnic, political and social inclinations.
“Elections are over and we are completely poised to commence serving our people with all our strength and might, God helping us” he promised.
