THROUGH its local chapter in Kano State, the All Progressives Congress told Senator Shehu Sani that Kaduna voters would not allow comedian to govern them.
The party was reacting to the senator’s declaration for the Kaduna State governorship seat with a promise to clear the mess created by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.
But the ruling APC said the people are sophisticated enough not to allow sani to ruin El-Rufai’ achievement, saying “Kaduna is too big for a comedian to govern”.
In the statement by the state Publicity Secretary-elect, Salisu Tanko Wusono, the APC described as unfortunate that all sorts of characters have ambitions to take the driver’s seat after the incumbent.
Wusono said: “We greet the people of the state and wish them a peaceful and prosperous 2022. In 2015 and again in 2019, the APC gladly accepted the electoral mandate freely given by the people of Kaduna State and we remain grateful for that.
“With this popular mandate, the APC has established a new standard for governance in the state, setting the bar very high because that is what the people of Kaduna State deserve.
“Since May 2015, the APC has placed Kaduna State on the path of sustainable progress and development. Through policy and legislative reforms and concrete, visible projects, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has admirably implemented the APC’s manifesto and showed that quality governance is possible in Kaduna.”
