From the best senator ever in the history of Kaduna state, Distinguished Senator Uba Sani.

Today is definitely a day of joy for me and the good people of Kaduna State. My modest effort to lobby my dear colleagues on the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts has paid off. The Senate, in its wisdom, finally approved Kaduna State Government's request for a $350 Million Loan for massive infrastructural developments in the areas of education, health, agriculture, rural roads and the environment.

It has been a tough and rough journey. The loan request was rejected in the 8th Senate due to the machinations of elements who elevated their personal and political interests above the interests of the people of Kaduna State.

My profound appreciation to the Senate President, His Excellency Ahmad Lawan and all Distinguished Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria especially my distinguished brothers from Kaduna State, Senator Suleiman Abdu Kwari and Senator Danjuma Laah for their kind consideration of the request and interest in developmental issues/concerns of all states in the country. Special mention must be made of the great members of the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts for doing a meticulous work on the loan request and approving it without hesitation.

I strongly believe that with Governor Nasir El-Rufai's innovative and focused leadership, the loan, when released, will put Kaduna State on a higher developmental pedestal.
