A former senator representing Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, Senator Shehu Sani, has expressed worry over the spate of attacks on him by his political opponents in the state

The former Senator also lamented over what he described as eight years misrule and bad governance of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the state.

The former Senator disclosed this while speaking to journalists  in Abuja. 

The former lawmaker said that no amount of threats or intimidation would stop him from speaking truth to power.

He accused his political enemies of sponsoring investigation into his academic credentials with the view of prosecuting him and ejecting him from the Senate.

Recall that Sani also lamented over an attack on his campaign office before the general elections.

He said, “Gunmen attacked my office and APC thugs were used to trail me wherever I went. 

“They also ordered the military to arrest one of my Aide Bashir Ahmad in 2017. Bashir was tortured by soldiers to implicate me in a murder case I knew nothing about. The police declined the case when it was evident that it was political” 

While commenting on former Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s administration in the last eight years, Sani said El-Rufai left a legacy of debt, unending terrorist killings and abductions in the state.

He described the eight years tenure of the Governor as a waste, saying that it was characterized with affliction, pure evil and tyranny.

He accused the Governor of promoting religious fanaticism and bigotry with the disdain and degrading treatment allegedly meted out to the people of Southern Kaduna while in office.

The lawmaker tgerefore cautioned President Ahmed Bola Tinubu against unholy romance and interaction with the former Governor.

“El-rufai supported Amaechi in the Primaries and not Tinubu.And during the Presidential election, El-rufai only concentrated on his son wining the House of Reps ticket and allowed Tinubu to lose.

“”El-rufai in Tinubu’s cabinet will be like snake in the room,

“E-lrufai’s exit is an affliction gone;Tinubu should be careful not to bring close to him a habitual and career Judas”. Sani added.
