Shehu Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial zone, has raised the alarm over recent “hate speech and threat to life by Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai,” against his person.

Mr. Sani in a statement signed by Suleiman Ahmed, his Special Adviser on Politics and Ideology, on Monday in Kaduna said their attention has been drawn to a hate speech and threat to life allegedly “made by El-rufai against distinguished Senator Shehu Sani in the Governor's circus christened Town Hall meeting in Giwa Local Government on 4th June, 2016.”

The statement reads in part: “The Governor reliably and evidently referred to Senator Sani, Dr. Hakeem Baba Ahmed, Isa Ashiru Kudan as 'Ants he will match and crush’.

“We could have easily dismissed or ignore this statement as Tantrums of an accidental Governor, but we decided not to take things for granted in view of the petit Governor’s mean and vicious history and his allergy to criticism.

“Also fresh in our mind is the mass killings and burial of members of the Islamic movement in Zaria last December.

“We view his unguarded and provocative utterances as nothing but a hate speech and a direct threat to the Life of Senator Sani and others whom the Governor perceived as his ‘enemies’. We hold Governor Nasiru El-Rufai personally responsible for any harm done on Senator Sani.

“This statement is to publicly alert security agencies and the General public that in the event of any injury or assassination of Senator Shehu Sani, no one should be held responsible but Governor Nasiru Elrufai.

“In Kaduna, a journalist, Jacob Dickson, was jailed and a University lecturer Dr. John Danfulani was jailed and suspended for criticising the Governor. Killing Senator Shehu Sani will not give him the ‘quiet’ he so much desires to  continue with his anti people’s programmes and policies in Kaduna State.

“It will interest the general public to know that after the dubious condolence visit by the Governor over the death of the Senator’s mother, Governor El-Rufai continue to use state funds to sponsor attacks against the Senator on local radio stations: He has even recently granted a personal interview on TVC television channel where he reigned invectives against the distinguished senator.”
