In apparent response to the claims that he has been retired, the immediate past senator that represented Kaduna Central in the Senate, Senator Shehu Sani, Wednesday boasted that he was not done with politics yet.
The Senator, dismissed statements that he has been retired from politics by Governor Ahmed El-Rufai following his defeat in the 2019 elections instead boasted that he would in due time bounce back in 2023.
The Senator, who lost Senator Uba Sani in his bid to return to the NASS, discountenance claims of being politically irrelevant in Kaduna state, saying the decision as to who receives the people’s to represent them belongs exclusively to the electorate not some politicians.
Accordingly, he boasted that he would surely bounce back “when our people want us to return”.
The Senator stated this at his residence in Kaduna when he has conferred an award of excellence for his outstanding performance and generosity to the service of humanity by Sabon Garin Nassarawa Elders’ Forum.
Senator Shehu Sani lost his senatorial seat to Senator Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC), an acolyte of the Kaduna state governor, Nasir El Rufai, in the 2019 senatorial election.
Governor El Rufai then boasted that the defeat of Shehu Sani meant he was retired from politics. But in a defiant tone, the Senator Shehu Sani in apparent reference to the governor’s claim said “We are not done yet with politics, and we shall return”.
“we have no fear for anything and nothing we scare us from contesting in 2023. When our people want us to return, we shall return”.
Shehu Sani said he was proud of stewardship in the National Assembly and the award conferred on him “was a testimony of his quality representation” as a senator in the 8th assembly.
The 8th senate was able to defend the integrity and independence of the parliament and stood firm to protect and defend democracy; checkmate the excessive power of the executive and carried out their constitutional functions and duties without fear or favour.
He reiterated his commitment to vying for a political office in 2023 election.
