Shehu Sani speaks on his political career, vows to return to power in 2023
A former federal lawmaker and rights activist, Senator Shehu Sani, has spoken about his political career, saying he is not done yet with the politics and that he will return to power in 2023 general elections.
Sani made this known in his residence in Kaduna state when he had conferred an award of excellence for his outstanding performance and generosity to the service of humanity by Sabon Garin Nassarawa Elders’ Forum.
The former lawmaker lost his senatorial seat to Senator Uba Sani, an acolyte of the state governor, Nasir El Rufai, in 2019 election. Governor El Rufai then boasted that the defeat of Sani meant he was retired from politics.
The senator in a defiant tone said: “We are not done yet with politics, and we shall return. “we have no fear for anything and nothing we scare us from contesting in 2023. When our people want us to return, we shall return.”
Earlier, The Herald reported that Sani said the federal government might be guilty of sadism if it did not follow legal procedure while carrying out the sting against the alleged corrupt elements of the judiciary in the sting that saw millions of Naira and foreign currencies seized by the Department of State Security (DSS).
He also accused the presidency of harbouring corrupt elements in its cabinet, saying the judiciary and legislative merely complemented the executive in a trifecta of corruption or what he described as the “three arms of corruption”.
He said: “The raid on the residences of the Supreme Court judges if done with a proper court order is justified but if done without a proper court order is nothing but sadism. Support for search or arrest without warrant irrespective of the gravity of suspicion is a tacit endorsement of tendencies of a totalitarian state,”
“With mountains of allegations of corruption in the kitchen cabinet of Mr. President; with mountains of allegations of corruption in the Parliament; with mountains of allegations of corruption in the Judiciary, now we are having a three Arms of corruption.”
