The senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the Senate, Shehu Sani, says there is a need for the emergence of a new political party, peopled mainly by the intellectuals, the working class and the youths, which will take Nigeria to the Promised Land.
This, according to him, had become the only option for the country because none of the existing major political parties in the country could do the job.
Sani, who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said the integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari, around which the APC built its government, was not enough to govern a plural country like Nigeria.
According to him, integrity is just a small fraction of what is needed to lead a country like Nigeria, stressing also that “fighting corruption cannot be the only objective or the idea and only focus of a government.”
Sani was one of the guest speakers at a symposium organised on Thursday by the Magodo Associates.
The symposium with the theme, “Nigeria: Which way forward?” held at the Afe Babalola Auditorium, University of Lagos.
