He performed those roles as the National Publicity Secretary of Arewa Consultative Forum and followed it up with being the spoke person for Northern delegates in the conference of 2014 and later the Secretary General of Arewa Consultative Forum.
Mr Anthony N Z Sani is currently a member of the Advisory Council of Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation and member of Northern Media Forum.
