Senator Shehu Sani’s suspension illegal — APC Zonal Chairman

The North-West zone of the All Progressives Congress has described the suspension of the senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, by the Kaduna State chapter of the party as illegal.

The Chairman of the party in the zone, Inuwa Abdulkadir, said on Monday that as far as the national secretariat of the APC is concerned, Mr. Sani remained a bonafide member of the party.

Mr. Abdulkadir was in Kaduna as part of the reconciliation process initiated by the national leadership of the party to resolve the internal crisis rocking Kaduna APC.

The party leader also warned aggrieved party members to desist from media campaign against one another.

Mr. Abdulkadir said, “We are in Kaduna to meet with the party elders in the state on ways to address the problem. Whatever the case may be, there are rules and regulations of the party that is bound on every party member.

“Therefore, as far as the national body of this great party is concerned, the suspension of Shehu Sani from the party is illegal based on the fact that the right procedure was not followed. Even the ward chairman wrote to the national body to say the suspension letter was forged.”

In a brief remark, a party chieftain in the state, Hakeem Baba Ahmed, who spoke on behalf of the elders of the party, expressed happiness for the intervention of the national leadership, saying it was timely.

Mr. Sani, who was also at the meeting, said he will abide by the ‘ceasefire’ agreement brokered by party leaders.

He said he had no problem with the state governor’s policies but that some people around the governor were fueling crisis between him and the governor.

A letter had emerged from Mr. Sani’s ward in Tudun Wada suspending him from the party for 11 months.

But the the chairman of the party in the ward later distanced himself from the suspension, saying the letter was forged.

    Finally, Messr Sanni has been tamed. I have not heard him going to the media criticizing his fellow party man since the suspension. We cannot have 2 governors in a state. Rufai is the only elected governor of the state under the platform of APC. He has the mandate to reform Kaduna.

    Oga Sanni should focus on writing laws that will help alleviate the sufferings of his constituency. There are many laws that need updating to reflect reality of modern Nigerians. I doubt Messr Sanni and Saraki are interested in that…

    This man doesnt have the intellectual capacity to be challenging every move that the governor makes including incidences that do not require comments. He feels that he has it all being a senator. If not for Buharis popularity in KD, he wouldnt have been able to win his ward.

      Yes Sani is a small party fly in comparison with a national APC pillar like El-Rufai.

    In Party politics when your ward suspends you,the National level is to simply confirm the act. Period!

    Sani should just move to pdp instead of being a mole in the house.
