Referring to Sani's constant use of social media for public commentary, the APC spokesman said governance is:

“Governance is a serious activity, meant for those with a track record of serious endeavours, vision, values, and clear policies. It is not for idle bloggers that think that decades of scavenging off the woes of people qualify them for leadership.
“Neither is it for persons whose record as civil servants contains no hint that they are capable of serious responsibility. It is not for persons who for two years remained clueless when fate handed them power, concentrating instead on their own vain looks and grand titles.
“This cast of characters is clear evidence that the PDP is clearly wedded to the sorry past, but the people of Kaduna state have moved on.
