“I will clean all the dirt they brought in the state in the name of development”, he made a categorical statement.

The Civil Rights activist who has never hidden his distaste for El-Rufai’s mishandling of State affairs that has affected the people badly insisted that Kaduna people deaerves better treatment, given its strategic placement in Nigeria.

Sani’s reasoning was no different from some prominent residents and watchers of development in Kaduna State, even as El-Rufai has come under serious criticisms for his mishandling of Civil servants, growing insecurity in the Christian dominated Southern Kaduna and other issues that puts the State in bad shape today.

Sani disclosed that loyalists and supporters wanted him to contest governorship which he has agreed to do so, adding that the APC will be removed in Kaduna State in 2023.
