Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District says there is a need for the emergence of a new political party, driven by the youths, intellectuals, and the working class, which will take Nigeria to the Promised Land.
Senator Sani believes this is the only option for the country because none of the existing major political parties in the country could do the job.
Senator Sani, said the integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari, was not enough to govern a plural country like Nigeria.
Sani a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) said “fighting corruption cannot be the only objective or the idea and only focus of a government.”
Sani made this known at a symposium organised on Thursday by the Magodo Associates where he was a guest speaker.
The symposium with the theme, “Nigeria: Which way forward?” held at the Afe Babalola Auditorium, University of Lagos with Prof. Akin Oyebode as the chairman.
Other speakers at the event were a chieftain of the National Democratic Coalition, Dr. Amos Akingba, Lagos-based preacher, Pastor Tunde Bakare, who was represented by Mr. Femi Lawson; Maj. Gen. Ishola Williams (retd.), Secretary of the Magodo Associates, Dr. Babafemi Badejo, and Mrs. Ada Agina-Ude.
Sani said while Buhari demonstrated his integrity by declaring his assets, many of the people in his government could not do the same.
“What we have here is one man whose major asset is integrity but how many within that camp can also beat their chests and say they are as credible as he is?
