The senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Sen. Shehu Sani, has picked the senatorial ticket of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) to contest the 2019 election.

The State Chairman of the party, Dr. Mataimaki Tom Maiyashi, made this known Monday, adding that the senator was duly registered at his Ward 6 in Tudun Wada in Kaduna South Local Government.

He said that the original candidate for the party’s ticket voluntarily stepped down for Sani.

Maiyashi said, “I wish to confirm that he is the candidate that will be contesting under our party for Kaduna Central Senatorial district.

“Although before the coming on board of Senator Shehu Sani somebody had already purchased form for the Kaduna Central senatorial ticket but on his own, he decided to step down.

“Senator Shehu Sani’s ideology has always been that of the PRP, so to us he has just come back home and we are happy he has returned.”

Sani dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) earlier in the month after he was denied the party’s senatorial ticket in favour of Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s political adviser, Uba Sani.
