Sen. Shehu Sani distributes Tools for Empowerment in Kaduna

The former Senator representing Kaduna Central, on Monday, gave out tools for empowerment to 150 people in the constituency and called on Nigerians not to shy away from speaking the truth to those in power.

He also urged the entire people of Kaduna State to follow the path of peace and shun any form of religious and ethnic violence.

Those who benefitted from the empowerment programme were drawn from Chikun, Giwa, Igabi and Kajuru local government areas of Kaduna state.

The Senator described the gesture as a right and part of the dividends of democracy.

“These items weren’t given to you by those you elected, neither favour done to you nor donations.

“They are your default right and also a part of the dividends of democracy for electing people into the office,” he said.

The items given by the former Senator included 50 sewing machines, 50 water pumping machines for irrigation and 50 generators.

Shehu Sani urged all the beneficiaries to put to good use the items given so as to enhance their economic status.

“Even though I am not a serving senator today, I still have a duty to deliver these empowerment materials to you.

“These materials were allocated to my office and my person and I have a duty to deliver them to you.

He further urged them to always speak the truth to those persons in power whether or not they like them.

“We are in the center of Northern Nigeria, the region which is faced with crisis, violence and bloodshed, whether the President is from the North or not, you all have the right to demand for equity and justice as it concerns the affairs of governance,” he said.

He called on the people of Kaduna central to be very conscious of their place in the politics of the state, claiming that they are being seriously marginalized and exploited in the politics of the state.

He further disclosed that within the four years of his tenure, he was able to construct and equip seven hospitals located in Rigachikun, Giwa, Igabi, Birnin Gwari and Tudun Wada.
