“We know that Nigerians are facing hunger, no money for school fees and no jobs,” the senator said while addressing the residents of the area during the event tagged “Street Parliament.”

Senator Sani, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, blamed the hardship Nigerians are currently facing on the 16 years of largely bad governance by the PDP.

The lawmaker, who received complaints from residents about the terrible condition of the road leading to the area, poverty, joblessness and lack of portable drinking water, regretted the neglect of the community by government, noting that “it is as if this community is not in Kaduna.”
