The Concerned Indigenes of Kaduna Central Senatorial District have threatened to recall Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone for allegedly working against President Muhammadu Buhari and people of the zone.
Leader of the group, Malam Aliyu Saidu, said yesterday in Kaduna that the senator has betrayed his constituents and declared war on them. “We the people of Kaduna Central unanimously support President Buhari in his effort to fix the economy and rid Nigeria of corruption and insecurity.
“We send Senator Shehu Sani to the Senate to work for the success of Buhari government and not work against it. But to our dismay, the Senator’s political behaviour and performance so far were in direct contrast to the yearnings and aspirations of the people of the district.
“So far, he has nothing to show for except social media posts insulting the president and cheering his (President’s) enemies. By his actions, the senator has caused more damage to the President and our great party as well as his actions have harmed our collective interest as a senatorial district.
“It is regrettable that the party has failed to call Senator Shehu Sani to order for his open belligerence against the government and our party. No individual, no matter how highly positioned, is above the party. We the people of Kaduna Central cannot afford to wait till 2019. We are ready to correct this anomaly through recall.
“We hereby inform the world that we shall be exercising our available constitutional options by initiating a recall process against Senator Shehu Sani. This will send a strong message that the people of Kaduna Central will never again entrust their destiny in the hands of any representative who is willing to ignore their needs in order to appease a political godfather elsewhere”, the group said.
The group affirmed that it cannot wait for Bola Tinubu’s reconciliation committee because they were fed up with the Senator’s attitude.
“He is not ready to change because the Governor had in the past extended a hand of friendship to him. And each time, he comes out of the meeting, he did the opposite.”
Meanwhile, Senator Sani dismissed the threat noting he has nothing to fear from rabble rousers and thugs employed by Governor Nasir el-Rufai to distract him from his legislative works.
He described the group as fake errand boys of Governor Nasir el-Rufai who are simply doing the governor’s bidding.
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Politics and Ideology, Comrade Suleiman Ahmed, the Senator said, “for close to three years, Governor el-Rufai has been using this sorts of fake groups to fight his cause and it has all failed. What are they doing to think of recall in less than a year to general elections, where have they been since?”
