The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna, Senator Uba Sani, has debunked a report that he sponsored a bill to rename the state to Zazzau.
Sani, who presently represents Kaduna Central in the Senate, said this in a Monday statement.
According to him, the report is a piece of “subversive information” and a lie from the pit of hell concocted by agents of destabilisation to mislead the public.
He said he was outraged by the report.
He appealed to the security agencies to investigate the source of the information and bring the culprits to book.
“My attention has been drawn to a concocted, subversive, malicious and false information circulating in the social media claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari has signed a Bill for the creation of Zazzau State, which I allegedly co-sponsored in the Senate with Senator Sulaiman Abdu Kwari.
“My immediate reaction to this outrageous and patently false piece of information is to wonder how mischievous elements can allow their imaginations to run riot, all in a bid to undermine their political opponent.
“I wondered how can people go to the extent of planning to destabilise their own state and worsen the insecurity situation because Senator Uba Sani has gained the full support of the people and is the man to beat in the 2023 governorship election in Kaduna State,” Sani said.
He explained that “the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is on break and that there was no such Bill before the Senate, adding that requests for creation of states are normally tabled before a Legislative Committee for Constitutional Review.
“The story is therefore the handiwork of agents of destabilisation and must be investigated by security agencies. Those behind this subversive act must be brought to book to serve as a deterrent to others.”
He said he was fully focused on putting finishing touches to fashioning effective strategies to ensure his success in the 2023 governorship elections.
“We have also been sharing our blueprint for Kaduna State with critical stakeholders in order to get their inputs. We are set for the commencement of campaigns in September 2022.
“No amount of evil machinations can distract us from our set goals.
“Their plans would continue to fail because our people are enlightened and understand the schemes of anti – development elements,” the statement said.
