Mr. Yekini Nabena, the acting publicity secretary of the party made this known during an interview with NAN on Sunday in Abuja.
According to the party, Nasir el-Rufai cannot decide who the candidates of the party should be.
According to the party, Sani was the only senatorial candidate from the zone that was duly recognised by the national body.
Shehu Sani had distanced himself from the primary election held in the state on Saturday, where he was said to have lost to Special Adviser to Governor Nasir el-rufai on Political Affairs, Malam Uba Sani.
The Returning Officer of the primary held at Murtala Muhammef Square, Kaduna, Prof. Eddie Floyd-Igbo, declared Uba Sani as the winner with 2,088 votes, while Shehu Sani garnered only 15 votes.
Another aspirant, Usman Ibrahim-Sardauna, was said to have secured only 129 votes.
Nabena, however, reiterated that, “As far as Kaduna Central Zone 2 is concerned, the only candidate is Senator Shehu Sani.
“Yes, election took place in that zone because of the House of Representatives and the State House of Assembly; as for the senatorial position, however, the only candidate is Senator Shehu Sani.
“The governor cannot dictate to the party.”
Naija News reports that the APC had enlisted Sen. Sani’s name in the list of those that will be flying the flag of the party during the 2015 general election.
