Scores of residents of Kaduna Central Senatorial District have taken to the streets in protest against an alleged non-performance by Senator Uba Sani.
The protest which began around 7:00 am on Friday witnessed a large turnout of protesters who are mostly youths.
Marching from Rigasa town in Igabi Local Government Area to the Kaduna metropolis, the protesters carried placards with various inscriptions such as ‘No more Uba Sani,’ ‘We don’t want Uba Sani’, ‘Uba Sani has failed us’ among others.
According to the protesters, the protest followed a discovery that the Senator had shut down all communication windows with his constituents, adding that all his offices across the local governments he represents remain closed since after his election.
While accusing the lawmaker of non-performance in office negligence, the youth also alleged that Mr Sani had never visited the constituency since after his election in 2019.
They also alleged that Mr Sani had been ‘sleeping’ in the National Assembly, saying that he was not being visible on the floor of the Senate.
A female protester, a resident of Barnawa who spoke with an online newspaper under anonymity, accused Mr Sani of not being accessible to his constituents as well as refusing to assist victims of kidnapping and insecurity now pervading the constituency.
Another protester also alleged that Mr Sani, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Banks and Financial Institutions, had not “executed any meaningful constituency projects from the 2020 budget”.
“Senator Sani’s attitude has continued to deny us the dividends of democracy that should have accrued to us since his election in 2019,” the youth lamented.
Mr Sani was yet to return the calls or text message DAILY NIGERIAN correspondent put across to him at the time of filing this report.
