Senator Denies Sponsoring Bill To Rename Kaduna State

(Last Updated On: 2022-08-15)


The media report on purported sponsorship of bill to rename Kaduna State to Zazzau State has been described as a lie from the pit of hell by Senator Uba Sani, representing Kaduna Central.

Sani made the refutal in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

‘The senator expressed dismay at what he described as a concocted, subversive, malicious and false information circulating in the social media claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari had signed a bill for the creation of Zazzau State, allegedly co-sponsored by him in the Senate with Senator Sulaiman Abdu Kwari.

“My immediate reaction to this outrageous and patently false piece of information is to wonder how mischievous elements can allow their imaginations to run riot, all in a bid to undermine their political opponent.

“Senator Uba Sani has gained the full support of the people and is the man to beat in the 2023 governorship elections in Kaduna State,” he said.

Sani who is the APC governorship candidate for 2023 election in Kaduna said Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was on break,adding that no such bill was before the Senate.

He said requests for creation of states are normally tabled before the Committee for Constitutional Review.

According to him, the story is therefore the handiwork of agents of destabilisation and must be investigated by security agencies.

He said those behind this subversive act must be brought to book to serve as a deterrent to others.

“Their plans would continue to fail because our people are enlightened and understand the schemes of anti – development elements,”Sani said.
