THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our esteemed delegates, supporters, sympathizers, members of the indomitable Uba Sani Campaign Organization and the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial District for their unflinching support in the long drawn battle for the ticket to fly our party’s flag in the 2019 senatorial elections. Despite the uncertainty and desperate scheming that attended the entire primary election process, you never wavered. You stood firm and undeterred. That is the stuff of true democrats and patriots.
As you are already aware, the National Working Committee (NWC) of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday, 18th October 2018 submitted my name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the validly elected candidate to represent the party in the 2019 senatorial elections in Kaduna Central District. This decision was the final seal to a most rigorous and hard fought primary election. I give all glory and thanks to the Almighty God for seeing us through.
I therefore owe you all an immense debt of gratitude for putting your trust in me. I pledge not to betray your faith and confidence in me. Your kind gesture would be reciprocated in the best way possible. My commitment is total. I will never rest until the long suffering people of Kaduna Central Senatorial District get a new lease of life. I shall not rest until we restore the lost glory of our constituency. My mission is to offer quality representation and deploy my energies towards attracting projects and investments that would positively change the condition of the people and the face of the constituency.
But I must remind us that the job is only half done. I call on our people to brace up for the all-important 2019 electoral battle. Despite our party’s popularity and the momentum that my candidacy has gathered, we must never underrate the opposition parties. We must fashion effective strategies and comprehensive plans that would ensure our total victory at the polls. For this to be possible all hands must be on deck. We must approach the elections as a united front.
I deeply appreciate and commend all my co-contestants in the Kaduna Central Senatorial primaries, namely; Senator Mohammed Sani Saleh, Hon. Usman Ibrahim, and Hon. Shamsudeen Shehu Giwa. Despite the fact that it was a keenly contested primaries, all of them accepted the people’s verdict and have offered to work closely with me to ensure the victory of our party in the 2019 polls. I am humbled by their spirit of sportsmanship and belief in the democratic process. I am totally committed to forging a sustainable partnership with all of them for the benefit of our people and our great party. We are one big family.
My special appreciation to our indefatigable National Chairman, His Excellency, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the National Working Committee (NWC). Despite pressures, the National Chairman and the NWC stood sentinel in defence of the rule of law and due process. They defended democracy and its key tenets. For their doggedness I remain eternally grateful.
Once more, I am deeply humbled by the overwhelming support I have so far received from a broad spectrum of the good people of our senatorial zone and beyond. I say THANK YOU ALL. It shall be well with you all. God bless you all.
Mal Uba Sani
Kaduna Central Senatorial Flagbearer Of The All Progressives Congress (APC)
