Senator representing Kaduna Central, Comrade Shehu Sani, has challenged Nigerian Youths to always seize any opportunity at hand to discover and develop their talents for self actualisation.

The Senator was commenting on the imperative of youths to get involved in active politics so as to be able to bring to bear, their fresh ideas to affect the needed change in leadership and governance in Nigeria at the Grand Finale of the Kaduna Talent Hunt Competition, organised by Empire Recordz, in collaboration with Invicta 98.9 FM, Kaduna on Tuesday.

“If you are really interested in the future of Nigeria come 2019, you must shift from social media and get your voter’s card to enable you effect the desired change.

“If Emmanuel Macron, President of France who founded a political party, contested election and won at the age of 39 years did it, you can also do it,” he challenged Nigerian youths.

‎”I contested for the Senatorial seat in 2003 and 2011 and lost but I won in 2015 when I contested again. So, if Shehu Sani can, you too can also do it.”

He donated the sum of N500,000 to winners of the grand finale of the Kaduna Talent Hunt Competition.

“l can see young people with dreams and ideas, but your dreams and ideas will perish if you have no opportunity.

“Some of the best musicians produced in the United Stated of America came through processes like this. Among you here, I see Kanye West, Chris Brown, Beyonce Knowles, when ‎given an opportunity that can be realized,” Sani added in a motivating spirit.

‎“I am not the typical kind of politician who will see red and say it is blue, we speak our mind; we challenge the existing power. All my life I have been a student union activist to a civil right activist. We went to prison to free this country and today we’re here.

“The ‎Youths of this country have a duty to continue to question power, demand accountability and good governance from their leaders,” he further said.

A grand price of a power generating set, N200, 000, Invicta FM Ambassador and a three-year record deal with Empire Recordz was won by X-Factor Dancers.

Solomon Augustin-a comedian won the 2nd price of a Plasma Television, N100, 000 and a three-year record deal.‎

The 3rd price was won by a rapper – Shagze Oluwyenton, who got a Home Theater and a three-year record deal. While ‎a soul singer, Esther Ezra won Sen. Shehu Sani Special Price of N100,000, a record deal ‎and additional N400,000 to be shared across 1st, 2nd and 3rd price winners.

While appreciating the Senators contribution, CEO of Empire Recordz, Awolope Seun pledged his support to his (Mr. Sani’s) political endeavour and aspirations within and outside Kaduna State.
