An in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari, Honourable Sani Mamood Sha’aban on Monday dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sha’aban’s decision to dump the ruling party in Kaduna State is coming amidst the controversy that trailed the governorship primaries of the party in the state.
Recall that Senator Uba Sani defeated Sha’aban in the governorship primary of the party.
The development saw Sha’aban challenge Sani’s victory in the court, however, two weeks ago, the court struck out the case, saying it lacked jurisdiction to entertain it.
The Campaign Director to Sha’aban, Joshua Danladi Ephraim on Monday during a press briefing read a letter which was signed by the governorship aspirant.
Sha’aban said activities of the party made him to reconsider his membership, alleging that rather than bringing dividends of democracy closer to the masses, “some few elements in Kaduna APC have hijacked the party structure.”
He added, “I believe I have in all conscience before God, done my possible best to stave off the inevitable but to no avail. I have come to a firm conclusion and resolved that in all good conscience. I cannot remain a member of the APC under the present State of Affairs.
“Where the interest of the majority of common folks is little regarded. I cannot remain in a Party that has little or no regard for human lives, social integration, peace and traditional values.
“I Sani Mamood Sha’aban has officially and formerly resigned my membership of the APC at all levels today 28 November 2022.”
He further stated that he is now consulting for his next line of action, adding that he would announce his next party soon.
Sha’aban noted that he would continue to challenge the APC Governorship candidate in court despite his resignation from the party.
