The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani,  has challenged northern governors as well as all the governors under the umbrella of All Progressives Congress (APC) to declare their assets publicly.

Sani gave the challenge on Friday, September 25, 2015, when some journalists paid him a Sallah visit in Kaduna.

He said the charge had become necessary in view of the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari who these governors believe in his prudent character and leadership style had since declared his own assets publicly.

The Senator cum human rights activist said there is no justification for the northern governors and other APC governors to hide their assets from the public if the leader they so much believed in, did not hide his own assets.

He also said that he was using the Sallah period to appeal to the Boko Haram insurgents to lay down their arms, even as he called on the Federal Government to adopt the option of dialogue as a way of bringing to an end the insurgency.

He added that Mr. President needs the support of every Nigerian to win the war against the Boko Haram.

Senator Sani criticised  some of the northern governors for their inability to pay workers salary, particularly when most of the workers were victims of flood disasters in most part of the region as well as losing their beloved ones in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
