Senator Shehu Sani reacts to Gov El-Rufai’s choice of Muslim as running mate
Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to Governor El-Rufai’s choice of Muslim as running mate, in the 2019 General elections.
According to Senator Shehu Sani, Kaduna state is a multi-religious and multi-ethnic state and people of all faiths must be treated with equal respect and dignity. He added that none should be treated with contempt by any government or non-state actors.
He wrote on Twitter;
“Kaduna state is a multi-religious and multi-ethnic state. We are a society of diversity. People of all faiths must be treated with equal respect and dignity.
“None should be treated with contempt or disrespect by any Government or non state actors. This is justice, this is peace.”
This is coming after the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the leadership of Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU), vowed that no one can polarize Kaduna State along religious line.
We reported that Governor Nasir El-Rufai, announced former Secretary of Kaduna Primary Health Care Development Agency, PHCDA, Hajiya Dr Hadiza Balarabe as his new running mate for the 2019 election. She will be replacing his present Deputy Governor, Bala Bantex, who is running for Kaduna South Senatorial seat on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dr. Balarabe, born in 1966, is from Sanga Local Government, which is located in the Southern Kaduna senatorial district.
