I will contest for Kaduna guber race against El-Rufai in 2019, Sani declares

Human rights activist and senator representing Kaduna Central Zone, Shehu Sani, has said that the days of Governor Nasir El-Rufai in office are numbered following his decision to contest against him in the 2019 governorship election.

Besides, Sani also said that he would soon officially decamp from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to one of the opposition parties where he will vie for the post to challenge El-Rufai.

The senator, who spoke in an interview with The Guardian at the weekend, said the attacks and killings by Boko Haram insurgents and Fulani herdsmen would affect the political fortune of the APC during the presidential and governorship elections in many states.
