The senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has implored the citizenry to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during the upcoming elections.
The presidential and national assembly elections will hold on February 16.
Sani was addressing a section of members of the Igbo Youth Peace and Unity Initiative in Kaduna on Wednesday evening where he lampooned Buhari and the APC for wreaking havoc on the people.
He said, “We must not deceive ourselves, we must tell ourselves the truth, the nation is sick, the state is sick. Nigerians expected a better deal than what we are having today.
“People who begged you three and half years ago to vote them have turned themselves to demigods.
“We have seen how poverty has ravaged the lives of Nigerians in the last three and half years, we have seen the killings, the level of bloodshed and violence, we have seen the division, the hopelessness, we have seen how a governor of a state have sacked thousands of people out of their work.
“How on earth do we give another opportunity to a man who has no human face, who has no human heart?”
He further advised Nigerians to elect leaders who have the interests of the masses at heart.
“Elect people who will do the bidding of the poor, the down trodden, the traders, the artisan, the mechanic, civil servants and the beggars in the street.
“It is unfortunate that our country, a very blessed one, but the leaders have identified with negative activities and evil actions.
“From the killings in Zamfara to Birnin Gwari, the killings in the north-east part of Nigeria and north central, of herdsmen.
“We have a duty to send a clear message to the leadership of the country that we can show you the way out just as the previous government was shown the way out of power.”
Sani was elected on the platform of APC in 2015 but defected to the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) after losing his reelection ticket.
