Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, sent a cryptic message on Twitter on Sunday, February 24, which hints that the embattled senator may have, in a veiled manner, conceded defeat.
Senator Sani is seeking re-election to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) after exiting the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) last year.
The outspoken senator has had a protracted battle with Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state, which eventually led to his exit from the APC.
Commenting on the polls on Sunday afternoon, Sani tweeted: “We appreciate every vote we honestly earned and not under anyone’s shadow or inducements in Kaduna Central; We remain unwavering in the defense of the ideals we stand for. We proudly stood tall with our heights and not with the glory of a borrowed high heels.”
Some Twitter users already considered the tweet as conceding the loss of his senatorial seat. See some reactions below:
