Let me start by giving God all the glory for making this day possible. On our own, there is very little we can do. Despite the initial hiccups and uncertainties, the Almighty One has done it for us. All praises to Him.
I would like to sincerely thank our esteemed delegates for finding me worthy of flying the flag of our great party in the 2019 Kaduna Central Senatorial elections. I am really humbled by your show of confidence, faith and trust in me.
I make a solemn pledge today that I will never disappoint you. We shall, together, take Kaduna Central District to greater heights.
This has been a very credible and transparent primary election. The Electoral Committee indeed deserves our commendation. Their conduct and the processes put in place gave delegates the confidence that they would not only exercise their franchise, but their votes would surely count. Such display of impartiality and fairness will go a long way in deepening our democracy.
Today’s election is the first step. There is more work to be done. We need to come together, restrategise and ready ourselves for the elections proper in 2019.
I extend my hand of fellowship to my dear brothers, friends, comrades and esteemed contestants, Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani, Gen Sani Saleh, Hon Usman Ibrahim Sardauna and Shamsudeen Shehu Giwa. Despite our differences, our mission remains the same; the progress and development of Kaduna State. Let us bury the hatchet and join hands together for the interest of our people.
My profound thanks to our dynamic and resourceful Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai for his leadership and support. My deep appreciation to our party officials for creating a conducive atmosphere for this elections and ensuring a free, fair and credible process.
I must not fail to recognise and thank the members of the irrepressible Uba Sani Campaign Organisation for working tirelessly to achieve today’s victory. My appreciation also goes to our teeming supporters, sympathisers and the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial District who kept faith with us throughout the campaigns.
Kaduna Central will be great again. God bless you all.
Mal Uba Sani
