By Ozumi Abdul
The Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Uba Sani, has welcomed thousands of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defectors to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The defectors vowed to ensure the success of Senator Uba Sani who is the state gubernatorial candidate, and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu during the general elections in 2023.
Senator Uba expressed his joy in receiving the former PDP members, promising them a level playing ground and internal democracy within the party.
He said the Arewa Traders Association in collaboration with the Kaduna State Traders Association from all 23 local governments across the state unanimously declared their support for his candidacy and that of Tinubu.
“While making my speech at the event, I thanked the association for coming together to declare their support for my candidacy and the APC in Kaduna State,” he said.
“I touched on my efforts as a Senator representing Kaduna Central and as Chairman, Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions where I facilitated CBN interventions to assist over 12,000 households and SMEs with grants/loans to boost their businesses following the effects of COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.
“In order to complement the efforts of the state government which has already constructed ultra-modern markets, I supported a number of underprivileged traders with the sum of Twenty Million Naira (N20,000,000) that will help them secure the 10% equity to own shops in the markets across the state,” he said.
“Different speakers took turns to express their readiness for the journey ahead in ensuring the success of our great party. I also joined other party officials in receiving thousands of defectors from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC),” he said.
