Sani, while receiving the 12,817 decampees which include a former commissioner, women and youth leaders in Giwa yesterday, assured the decampees that they have equal status and rights like every member of the ruling party.
“In APC, there is no discrimination. Those that joined today are equal in status as those who joined when the party was formed. We are a one and united family,” he added.
He advised the people of Giwa to vote for all APC candidates in the coming 2023 elections.
“You should vote for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the presidential election, vote for Muhammad Sani Abdullahi as senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district and vote for Jibrin Zubairu as member representing Giwa/Birnin Gwari federal constituency.
“You should vote for me during the governorship election and elect Umar Auwal Bijimi and Adamu Mohammed Shika to represent Birnin Gwari West and East respectively at the state House of Assembly,” he said.
The senator promised to be fair to all, develop all parts of Kaduna state and consolidate on the achievements of the Malam Nasir El Rufai administration.
