Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone and the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Senatorial Candidate, Shehu Sani has disowned posters, banners and other political campaign materials showing him and President Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Special Adviser to the Senator on Media, Abdulsamad Chima-Amadi, in a statement, noted that, “though we still hold President Mohammadu Buhari and the office he occupies in very high esteem, however, it is a know fact that at the moment, our political party, the PRP neither has a presidential candidate nor has the party adopted the presidential candidate of another political party.”
According to him, “my attention has been drawn to the existence of some political campaign materials having the pictures of Sen Shehu Sani (PRP) and President Mohammadu Buhari (APC) together.
“The office of Sen Shehu Sani wishes to inform the general public and at the same time make it categorically clear that we were not consulted, neither did we sanction the production of such political campaign materials.
“Few weeks ago, Sen Shehu Sani resigned his membership of the APC and along with his numerous supporters joined the Peoples Redemption Party PRP.”
Abdulsamad, said the materials were the handiwork of one ‘Alh Aminu Aminci’ who is a staunch supporter of both Sen Shehu Sani and President Mohammadu Buhari, according to a preliminary investigations their campaign office carried out.
He added, “much as we very much appreciate the support Sen Shehu Sani enjoys from individuals and groups, it is still important to clarify issues like this to avert any form of confusion and misinformation.
“We thank the good people of Kaduna Central for keeping faith with Sen Shehu Sani and giving him their unflinching support. The Senator has answered their clarion call to continue representing them at the red chamber and he has chosen the real Political party for the masses, the People’s Redemption Party PRP as the platform under which he will be contesting for the Kaduna Central Senatorial seat in 2019.”
