Senator Shehu Sani

The senator representing Kaduna Central at the Nigerian Senate, Shehu Sani, says people of all faiths must be treated with equal respect and dignity in Kaduna.

His comments appear to be a reaction to Governor Nasir Elrufai, a Muslim, picking a another Muslim as his running mate for 2019 governorship election.

The Kaduna governor announced former Secretary of Kaduna Primary Healthcare Development Agency (PHCDA) Hajiya Dr Hadiza Balarabe as his new running mate for next year’s polls.

Balarabe would be replacing his present Deputy Governor, Bala Bantex, who is running for Kaduna South Senatorial seat on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting to the development in a cryptic message on Twitter on Sunday, Sani said Kaduna state was a multi-religious and multi-ethnic state and as such none should be treated with contempt or disrespect by any Government or non-state actors.

The lawmaker, who recently moved to the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) after dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), wrote: “Kaduna state is a multi-religious and multi-ethnic state. We are a society of diversity. People of all faiths must be treated with equal respect and dignity. None should be treated with contempt or disrespect by any Government or non state actors. This is justice,this is peace.”
