The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Uba Sani, has denied allegations that he co-sponsored a bill seeking the creation of Zazzau State from Kaduna State.
Sani, who is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 election said he did not co-sponsor the bill in the Senate with Senator Sulaiman Abdu Kwari.
In a swift statement he personally signed, the lawmaker described the allegations as “patently false”, wondering how “mischievous elements can allow their imaginations to run riot, all in a bid to undermine their political opponent.”

Sani said the allegations were orchestrated by his political opponents because he has “gained the full support of the people and is the man to beat in the 2023 governorship elections in Kaduna State.”
He said: “The Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is on break. No such bill is before the Senate. Requests for creation of states are normally tabled before the Committee for Constitutional Review. The story is therefore the handiwork of agents of destabilization and must be investigated by security agencies. Those behind this subversive act must be brought to book to serve as a deterrent to others.”

The governorship candidate said: “I am fully focused on putting finishing touches to fashioning effective strategies to ensure our success in the 2023 governorship elections. We have also been sharing our blueprint for Kaduna State with critical stakeholders in order to get their inputs. We are set for the commencement of campaigns in September 2022. No amount of evil machinations can distract us from our set goals. Their plans would continue to fail because our people are enlightened and understand the schemes of anti-development elements,”
