Senator Shehu Sani

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (PDP-Bayelsa East) has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will welcome Senator Shehu Sani (APC-Kaduna Central) to the party.

The chieftains of the APC in Chikun, Birnin Gwari, Kajuru, Kaduna North, Kaduna South and Giwa Local Government Area, had declared that Uba Sani, a political adviser to Governor Nasir El-Rufai is their choice for the Kaduna Central Senatorial ticket, rejecting Sani.

Reacting to the rejection, Senator Sani said it was nothing but the antics of Governor El-Rufai.

In a tweet on Monday, Murray-Bruce wrote: “Senator @ShehuSani is an asset to Nigeria and a pride to the @NGRSenate.

“I have traveled all over Nigeria and very few Nigerians can match his intellect.

“If APC doesn’t want him, the @OfficialPDPNig wants him. Nigeria wants him. Democracy needs him. He’s a specimen of patriotism!”
