APC Gives Conditions To Lift Shehu Sani’s Suspension
All Progressives Congress (APC) Kaduna state chapter has called on Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central to tender an apology to Nasir El-Rufai, the governor, and President Muhammadu Buhari if the indefinite suspension imposed on him should be lifted.
In a statement yesterday by Ibrahim Togo, chairman of the party in Tudun Wada ward where Sani is from, said the action had the backing of the leadership of the party in the state.
“In all fairness to the party and Kaduna state voters, the only pre-condition for lifting this suspension on Senator Shehu Sani is for the lawmaker to openly apologise to the leadership of our great party for his various acts of misconduct and disrespectful attitude towards both his constituents, party leadership and his vicious media attacks against our amiable President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
“He should also apologise to the government and people of Kaduna state for frustrating the $350 million loan meant to develop the state.”
In a swift reaction, the faction loyal to the senator dismissed the suspension, expressing their commitment to getting him reelected to the senate in 2019.
“Ordinarily we would not have dignified these brainless characters with a response because it is common knowledge that the elephant footprint obliterates that of the camel,” Abbas Muhammad Anni, chairman of the group loyal to Sani, said in a counter statement.
“However, it becomes imperative to dispel this facade based on the request made by our teeming supporters across. In this regard, the members of APC in Ward 6 and the general public are hereby notified to ignore in strong terms such blackmail and intimidation in the name of ‘suspension’ as it is completely with neither basis nor authority conversely, we wish to affirm our unflinching support and solidarity to Senator Shehu Sani for continuity in the forthcoming elections in 2019.”
As earlier reported by Naija News, Emmanuel Jekada, chairman of the APC ruling party in the state, has also affirmed the suspension of the senator.
