Senator-elect for Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, Malam Uba Sani, has described Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s re-election for second term as ratification of covenant with the people of Kaduna state and that there are better days ahead.
Addressing selected journalists in Kaduna following presentation of certificate of returns to Governor Nasir el-Rufai and 34 members-elect of Kaduna State House of Assembly by the Independent National Electoral Commission, Malam Uba urged residents of Kaduna state to get ready to enjoy better times.
“It is indeed reassuring that a people should so overwhelmingly endorse our amiable Governor for another four-year tenure and also accept to elect other trusted candidates he recommended for them into various offices at national and state levels.
“Overwhelmed by this general outpouring of support and further repose of confidence in our Governor and our great All Progressives Congress, we assure the people of Kaduna state of our renewed dedication to ensuring a better, more greener future of the entire state.
“This confidence and support shall certainly be reciprocated by the government under Malam el-Rufai, who is generally and rightly acknowledged as a honourable man who sticks to his words,” the Senator-elect said.
Uba Sani, who is currently political adviser to Governor el-Rufai, thanked the entire people of Kaduna state for the orderly and peaceful manner in which they conducted themselves throughout the election process as well as through the difficult period of managing victory.
El-Rufai, after receiving his certificate of return from INEC, promised to work twice hard to make Kaduna state recover the last eight years of stagnation and enable it meet up with its neighbours.
The Governor-elect reaffirmed his commitment to do his best to restore Kaduna to a state that works for its people.
