According to him,” the ugly situation in Southern Kaduna is not an exception to Northern Kaduna, stressing that there is need for all hands to be on deck to nipped the situation with all sense of sincerity.
“If there is no peace in Southern Kaduna, there is no way Kaduna state will be in peace. We must stay together as long as God brought us as one,” Shehu Sani added.
Shehu Sani disclosed that,” Southern Kaduna is face with four problems, Issue of Christians and Muslims which its has been there for more than 40 years, clashes between Farmers and herdsmen, Visitors and indigene and People who hide in the bush to attack innocent people at night for no reason.”
“What is happening now in Southern Kaduna has happened in Birnin Gwari, Zamfara and other part of the state,” Shehu Sani said, adding, “There must be a holistic approach in stemming the situation. A poor Man in Southern Kaduna is faced with the same problem with a man from Zaria which is caused by corruption.”

“If you remove general Muhamadu Buhari who declared his asset, 9 percent out of10 are corrupt. If you have not forgotten, it was not APC that killed PDP but it members. It was not a skin disease that killed PDP but stomach pains, injustice and lack of truth which is now happening in the APC,” Shehu Sani added.
Shehu Sani urged Barnawa APC elders to be conscious of some political leaders who do not care about their well being but in the next eight month they will start seeing them and their posters.

“We are confident that you will support us. Its our hope that our problems will be solve through you.”
The elders further prayed fore him to continue the good works he has been doing, stressing they will support him to contest for the Governorship in the state in 2019.
