The Senator Representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani , on Sunday in Kaduna commenced the distribution of one hundred thousand transistor radio sets in seven local government areas under his senatorial district.
He said the gesture was to raise the political consciousness the people and have more access to information on what is happening within and outside their localities.
“We come from the part of the country where the major and most important source of information is the radio. “Radio is an empowerment, a form of education and enlightenment.
”It enables people to have access to information and also have an opportunity to express themselves,” he said.
According to him, radio has for decades been the only medium where people in the North get better informed.
“I am sharing it to downtrodden within the cities and the rural areas so that they would be abreast with what is happening within their own locality, national and state,” he said.
Senator Sani told journalists that the National body of APC has already invalidated his suspension from the party and advised the two parties to avoid any form of attack and counter attack.
“I have instructed all my supporters and followers to abide by this, but unfortunately, some people are capitalizing on the crisis for their own monetary gains.
“I am saying it in clear terms that as far as I am concerned we would abide by what the national body says,” he said.
According to him, he would remain in APC as long as President Buhari is still in the APC, “because Buhari is APC,”
He said as Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debt and also vice chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, he would continue to call on nations which Nigeria has diplomatic relations with to assist the fight on corruption by returning money looted from Nigeria.
