Sani in his acceptance speech thanked the party’s delegates for the confidence reposed in him and promised to collaborate with other aspirants to ensure the party secures victory at the general elections in 2023.

He promised to build on the legacies of El-Rufai in tackling the numerous challenges before the state and forge unity among the people of Kaduna.

While appreciating El-Rufai’s support, the governorship candidate assured him of his determination to take the state to higher heights.

He said, “for long we waited for this moment. By the special grace of God, we are witnesses to this glorious moment. I am deeply humbled and delighted to stand before this distinguished gathering of our party delegates, top officials, and supporters to deliver this acceptance speech.

“This is your victory. This is your moment. This is the beginning of the journey of consolidation and continuity. We shall build on the wonderful legacies of our dear leader, the irrepressible Governor Nasir El-Rufai. Together we shall tackle our challenges and forge unity among our people.

“Today’s governorship primary is a showpiece of superb organization, display of decency, patience, and discipline by delegates. We have shown that we believe in democracy and are ready to follow the rule of law and due process. Democracy is about participation. Once people are allowed to express their free will, the process and outcome are a beauty to behold.

“I, therefore, thank my co-contestants, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Sha’aban and Alhaji Bashir Abubakar for their belief in the democratic process. I will reach out to these great politicians and strategists and extend my hand of fellowship to them.
