Group Tackles El-Rufai’s Anointed Aspirant Uba Sani Over Another Muslim/Muslim Ticket Plot in Kaduna
Barely two days after Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State unveiled his preferred successor, Senator Uba Sani, the Kaduna Fairness and Justice Monitors (KFJM) has described as insensitive and deceptive a speculated plot by the aspirant to repeat “El-Rufai’s divisive politics” of floating a Muslim/Muslim ticket in 2023.
The KFJM in a statement by its leader, Haruna Sahabi said its response is in reaction to a report by Daily Trust that the current Deputy Governor, Hadiza Balarabe may be paired with Senator Uba Sani on the 2023 governorship ballot for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The group warned that any attempt to “use Islam as cover to deceive the Muslim voters as was done by El-Rufai” which ended up imposing an incompetent woman as Deputy Governor and widening the ethno-religious fault lines in the state.
“Besides neither Uba Sani nor the purported deputy has any record of being of any value to the Islamic religion and the Muslim community.
“This is just another desperate attempt to smear the religion of Allah by fronting it in politics to achieve a dubious political goal by people who clearly lacks conscience.
“For the past three years since ElRufai used the incompetent lady as a bait for Muslim voters, this woman has not added any value to the government or to women folk and the state, beyond dragging the blessed name of Islam into ridicule.
“We are Muslims and we know for certain that a combination of Uba and Hadiza would not in anyway be representative of the state’s Muslim community. At best it is another attempt to use Islam as bait to impose incompetence and gross insensitivity on the population,” Sahabi said.
