Uba Sani will build on El-Rufai’s legacy, says Ashafa
The Sardauna of Ikulu kingdom in Kaduna, Alhaji Ismail Yusuf Ashafa, has called on Kaduna residents to vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Senator Uba Sani as governor in 2023.
Sarduana, who doubled as an assistant director in the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) Abuja, said he is confident that Senator Sani will build on the achievements and legacy of the incumbent governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, once he succeeds him.
He recalled that Senator Sani was part of the elrufai’s administration in 2015, saying he has the capacity and experience to take kaduna to the next level.
“Senator Uba’s immediate priority will be to sustain the current level of Governor El-Rufai’s achievements and build on them to advance the development of Kaduna State,” Ashafa said.
Reacting to calls by Kaduna residents on Senator Sani to pick him as his running mate, Ashafa said his major focus is on working to ensure that the Senator succeeds El-Rufai as the governor.
“Leadership is crowned and destined by only God and once it is your time to be a leader, you will be. We are all APC from top to bottom and we will contiue to support distingushed senator Uba Sani,” Ashafa said.
“People have been actualy calling on senator Uba Sani to pick me as his runing mate. I as a person i have never contested any position and i had no such plan.
“I believe leadereship is crowned by God and once it is your time to be a leader. Most of the people making the call are actually saying I have been good to all and sundary, but for me as a person, i have not done anything different from how a human being is supposed to behave. I believe if God blesses you, it should not remain within you and your imidiate family, the blessing is supposed to be for everyone. Let everyone feel the impact of you in your society. if you keep good things to yoursel alone, it means you don’t appreciate God.”
A Pressure group, known as Southern Kaduna Progressive Youth had called on Sani to pick Ashafa as his running mate and described him as a man of proven integrity from the axis.
The Chief Convener of the Group, Barrister Henry Jenom, made the call during a press conference in Kaduna on Wednesday.
Jenom said if Ashafa is given the chance to run a joint ticket with Senator Uba Sani, it would lead to a landslide victory and Kaduna State would witness tremendous development.
