…accuse him of non-performance, failure to execute constituency projects
Scores of residents of Kaduna on Friday stormed the streets to demand the recall of Senator Uba Sani, the lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
The constituents, who carried placards with various inscriptions such as ‘No more Uba Sani,’ ‘We don’t want Uba Sani’ and ‘Uba Sani has failed us,’ ‘#Secure North,’ #End kidnapping,’ ‘No more Uba Sani,’ and ‘ Ka dawo’, also chanted war songs, saying in Hausa, ‘Ba mu so Uba Sani!’
The protester, as early as 7:30am, stormed the streets in the Rigasa area of Kaduna, the state capital, from where they proceed to other parts of the city with their demonstrations.
They accused the lawmaker of non-performance in office and neglect of his constituents in Kaduna Central Senatorial District.
The protesters further accused Uba Sani of not being accessible to his constituents, refusing to assist victims of kidnapping and insecurity now pervading the constituency.
They also alleged that Senator Uba Sani had been ‘sleeping’ in the National Assembly as he had not been visible on the floor of the Senate with any meaningful contribution as well as failing to execute any constituency project since he was elected in 2019.
Some of them interviewed by our correspondent alleged that since Uba Sani’s election into the Senate in 2019, the lawmaker had stayed put in Abuja and forgotten about the people of the area who voted for him.
According to them, Senator Sani’s attitude has continued to deny the people of the district the dividends of democracy that should have accrued to them since his election in 2019.
Efforts by our correspondent to speak with Senator Uba Sani on the protest proved abortive.
The lawmaker did not pick calls made to his phone and he also did not respond to the SMS sent to him as of the time of filing this report.
