Sen. Shehu Sani has promised to make it impossible for terrorists to operate in Kaduna State if elected governor in 2023.
He made the vow on Wednesday after purchasing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Expression of Interest and nomination forms to contest the party’s governorship ticket.
According to him, the state needed a leader that would nip in the bud the insecurity challenges confronting it.
“I tend to come up with a programme that will address the issues of health, education and also youth development.
“My basic interest in vying for this position is how I can uplift the standard of living of my people and contribute to Nigeria`s development.
“To the knowledge of every one of us, Kaduna has become a hub for terrorists and bandits. We need a leader that will nip the banditry in the bud.
“We need a leader that will present and implement programmes and policies that will make it impossible for these terrorists to turn our state into their hub.
“I am here for serious business, we cannot continue to fold our arms and our people are being killed every day and the government remained helpless.
“I don’t believe that we cannot address this problem.
“I believe that if you have a programme of action that will work with the people of the state and the security architecture, that will unite the people to fight and confront the common enemy, we will bring this terrorism to an end.
“I am here because I believe that I have something to offer. I am not the typical career politician that you know, I am an activist.
“I believe that I am in this to mobilise our people to lead the battle to protect our people to protect our country, he said.
Sani pledged that if elected he would provide the necessary equipment and services that will help the security agencies to take the battle to the terrorists.
However, he decried the level of division in Kaduna State that made it impossible to tackle insecurity.
He said his government would unite the state to fight common enemies.
