POLITICS: ‘I Was Robbed Of My Mandate'' Says Senator Shehu Sani As He Reacts To His Election Loss


Senator Shehu Sani who lost his second term bid to represent Kaduna Central senatorial district in the National Assembly in the February 23rd election, has said he was robbed of his electoral victory. 

Senator Sani said this when he appeared on Channels TV last night. Sani who is at loggerheads with the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, attributed his defeat to alleged electoral malpractices in the poll.

“I don’t think I lost that election because you oddly lose an election when it is free, fair, and credible. When it is a robbery, it is either you are robbed, or you robbed, and in that case; I was robbed.” he said

Speaking further, Sani said there was no credible election in the state on February 23rd.

“There was virtually no credible National Assembly election in Kaduna. They stuffed ballots, they thumb printed, there was over voting, and the card readers in many places never worked. The story of Kaduna National Assembly election was not different from what happened in other places where it was confirmed by the observers, and even other opposition parties that the elections in Kaduna, as far as the National Assembly election, was simply false.” he said

The lawmaker accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of conniving with the state government and the ruling party in Kaduna.

He, however, said there were video clips and other evidence that himself and his paty would present to the Election Petition Tribunal in their resolve to reclaim their mandate.
