As the 2019 general elections gathers momentum, former Senator who represented Kaduna Central from 2011-2015, General Sani Saleh (rtd) has called on electorate not to allow themselves to be used or coerced to vote the wrong people but should instead vote for only people of intregrity and who have contributed positively to the society.
He expressed this when a House of Representatives aspirant, Ekene Abubakar Adams empowered residents of Romi Community with items worth millions of naira which include generators, hair dryers, clippers and cash amongst others.
“We are getting close to the electioneering campaign and a number of people will be coming to seek for your votes.I want you to remember that some will only come to sweet talk you.
“I want to beg you that when that time comes, vote people who would help you. Ask them to show you what they have contributed to the society before you vote for them,” he said.
General Saleh who was the chairman of the occasion further appealed to the youth to shun all forms of violence and seek ways of contributing to the society positively.
“I want to beg you and appeal that you embrace peace. Even if you are rich, you cannot enjoy it when there is no peace. As such, I want to appeal to our youth to shun violence and seek ways of gainful employment,” he said.
Senator Saleh said that the current political dispensation had witnessed all manners of politicians, but only few like Ekene Adams have the people at heart.
“For the past 18 years, we have witnessed all manners of people in politics. By God’s grace, people like Ekene Adams want to use politics and the institution of office to help people.
“ For Ekene Abubakar Adams, I want to say thank you for this empowerment. You are not doing it because of politics, but out of genuine love for the people, “ he said.
He commended the SA Gbagyi 1, Dr. Danjuma Barde for ensuring that peace reigns in his kingdom, while congratulating beneficiaries of the empowerment and urging them for judicious use of the items.
“I pray that these items you are receiving today will better your lives and one day, you will be in position to empower other people.
“ When you help one person in establishing a trade, you have helped humanity,” he emphasized.
