How I will end banditry in Kaduna - Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th National Assembly and is a candidate for governor of Kaduna State in 2023, has promised to stop banditry and resuscitate the textile industry if elected.

Sani said it was unacceptable that bandits decide the fate of state citizens, adding that residents in only two of the state's 23 Local Government Areas could sleep with their eyes closed.

On Tuesday, the PDP governorship candidate spoke to media at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Secretariat in Kaduna ahead of the party's primary.

Sani stated that he was the only candidate in the contest for the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House in Kaduna in the 2023 governorship election who could defeat the state's ruling party.

He stated that he was not denying the fact that the platform's other six governorship candidates were all very competent, but that he was the only one who could challenge the state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai.

"My desire is not a do-or-die thing," the former congressman remarked. My ambition stems from the fact that the APC is mismanaging the state, and I have a list of agendas in place to address the issues.

"I will address the security challenges in the state. Kaduna has become a bad example as one of the most insecure states in Nigeria, with the government being helpless.

“There are 23 local government areas in Kaduna state and 21 local governments are under security siege. It is only in Kaduna North and Kaduna South that you sleep with your eyes closed.

“It has been 49 days since people have been kidnapped in the Abuja-Kaduna train and the victims are still in captivity.

"As Governor, I will ensure that security is manned by experts who are well trained to address insecurity and not journalists.

Sani added, “Kaduna State people today are at the mercy of bandits who now decide who dies and who survives. How come there is no Banditry in most parts of the North but Kaduna.

“I want to address the security challenges in the state. I will not be a governor that will say the security of my people is in the hands of the FG, I will answer my name as the chief security officer."
