The senator elect for Kaduna Central in the concluded election, Uba Sani has promised to be senator to every body in the senatorial District irrespective of political and religious affiliations.
Addressing a press conference after he was declared winner of the poll, Senator Sani said he will work to ensure that the challenges faced by the Kaduna Central senatorial District get the desired attention.
Kaduna Central covers Kajuru and Birnin Gwari local governments where there has been a lot of security challenges.
“The people have spoken. Our people spoke very loudly and decisively. And the message is crystal clear: Uba Sani is our choice for the 9th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Nothing can be more touching and humbling. It is therefore with the greatest humility and a heart full of thanks to Almighty Allah that I pledge to uphold the mandate freely and abundantly given to me by the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone.
“The overwhelming mandate is no doubt a big challenge. It is indicative of the fact that the people are tired of poor representation in the National Assembly, especially in the Senate, and have resolved to address the leadership deficit in the zone. They want responsible and responsive representation. The people want a person who can offer quality representation and deploy his deep and extensive contacts to complement the efforts our hard working Governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai to address developmental deficits in our dear zone.
“The people want Kaduna Central Zone to regain it’s pride of place as the political and cultural hearbeat of the Northern Nigeria and a key business hub, as well.
“I want to make a solemn pledge to the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone: I will be your true representative. I will be selfless in pursuit of the things that will bring progress and development to the zone. I will sponsor bills and motions that will address key challenges in the zone. I will work effectively with the Kaduna State Government to make life more abundant for our people. I will use my contacts to attract investors and development agencies to our zone.
But far and above all, I will be a Senator for all. The elections are over. God in his infinite wisdom, through the people, has chosen me to be the Senator. It is not by my power. It is just a responsibility. I therefore call on all of us to close ranks and work towards uplifting the conditions of our people. I will be open to all ideas that can move our zone forward. I will listen to all, irrespective of creed, tribal, religious and political party affiliations or persuasions” he said
