A Senator from Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau, has declared he won’t retire from politics until death comes calling.
The 65-year-old Senator, said, “I have no time to retire from politics until death”.
Shortly after he inaugurated the Shura Consultative Assembly whose mission, he said, is to facilitate “Just and fair Leadership” at any level of government, the Senator spoke about his political future.
“As far as I am concerned, there is no time for me to retire from politics.
“I have been saying this for the past 20 years. My politics is my religion; my religion is my politics and there is no time to retire out of religion. Because the two work towards one goal.
He also said,
“If I am 90 years old or too old to contest and go out and campaign, I can render some advice to the people in my bed. Politics is the process of serving humanity, that is my interpretation”.
Shekarau, was Minister of Education from 2014 to 2015. He was a two-term Governor serving from 2003-2011 and was elected Senator in 2019.
