You are a disgrace, Kaduna APC replies Shehu Sani

The rift in the Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, worsened on Wednesday as the party slammed the senator representing the state’s central district, Shehu Sani, over his diatribe against Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

The party described the senator as uncouth, shameless and disgraceful.

The fresh harsh words were in response to Mr. Sani’s reaction to his “indefinite suspension” earlier announced by a faction of the party in his ward.

The APC faction in Mr. Sani’s Tudun Wada, Ward 6 led by the ward secretary, Awwal Abdulhamid, had announced the suspension on Tuesday. The move to suspend the senator was opposed by the chairman of the party in the ward, Abbas Ani.

The acting publicity secretary of the party in Kaduna State, Salisu Wusono, in a statement issued in Kaduna on Wednesday lashed Mr. Sani as representing “the politics of fraud and deceit”.

Mr. Wusono stated: “As if determined to prove that he is beyond redemption, Shehu Sani penned a pathetic response to his continued suspension from our party that testifies that he is a denizen of the gutter.

“Anyone that harboured any doubt about the morass in his mind and the decadence of his conduct would now have those uncertainties wiped away. Crassness of language is a twin to crass of conduct.”

The party said Mr. Sani’s “outburst is a confirmation, that he has no sense of shame.

“He is a man full of tantrums, a busker who simultaneously entertains and distresses people with his shameless antics.

“He has since lost focus and why he was elected to the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by the good people of Kaduna Central under the banner of the APC.

“He represents fraud, deceit in the name of Nigeria’s masses. We suspended him indefinitely following his various anti-party activities and utterances aimed at tearing the party to pieces.

“The masses of Kaduna Central have since unravelled his deceit. His heart and mind are in the PDP whose agent he has been in our party. We wonder when he would gather the courage to publicly move to the party he hobnobs with in private.” the statement said.

But in a swift reaction at a press briefing by his aide, Suleiman Ahmed, Mr. Sani said the state governor was being deceived by one of his advisers, Uba Sani.

The senator alleged that Mr. Uba Sani was using his office and the governor to pursue his personal ambitions and vendetta.

He said it was “painful and disheartening” that public funds were being used to sponsor “miscreants” to cause trouble in the society.

“While states like Sokoto and Boko Haram-ravaged states like Borno and Yobe are commissioning mass housing projects, all our governor does is to paint roundabouts in Kaduna State”, the senator said.

The aide said despite Mr. Sani’s suspension by the party, he “has been up and doing in the Senate, proposing and supporting bills that will bring succour to our people.

“On the other hand Governor El-Rufai has been busy wasting state funds on a useless fight against an individual, leaving the state in a state of despair and hopelessness.

“Our health sector is in decay, education has collapsed there is pervasive insecurity everywhere you go in the state,” he added.

    Nasir El Rufai as a bespectacled pygmy

    I actually love pygmies.
    Pygmies are nice and pleasant things; though loud and noisy but
    harmless and fretful. Since pygmies must look up to everyone else, quite
    literally from ground level, pygmies usually tend to overcompensate by making
    noise or acting tough. But pygmies are not tough at all. They just make it up.
    My knowledge of pygmies is actually deeper than this. Pygmies I have studied
    are usually mentally empty. They don’t seem to have the same reasoning ability
    as other humans of usual height. I am yet to meet a brilliant pygmy. I am looking
    forward. My point though is that I do not know the traits of all pygmies because
    I have not met all of them or met a bespectacled pygmy, like Nair El Rufai.

    I have never met
    any bespectacled pygmy – which Senator Shehu Sani describes the rather shortish
    Nasir El Rufai as. I cannot say if dwarfs who wear glasses show the same traits
    as the other pygmies I have met and won’t know the answer until I meet with
    Nasir El Rufai in person. All I can say about bespectacled pygmies is hearsay;
    and that is perhaps by assessing the intelligence quotient of the known friends
    to Nasir El Rufai – such as Lamido Sanusi Lamido – for a hypothetical estimate,
    since birds of the same feather flock together.

      Man, what are your talking about? The alleged thief formerly in charge of central bank of Nigeria awarded billions and billions of Naira contract to the pygmy using the words from Sani. Mr. Sani, you have said dwarf. The dwarf governor has been harassing Sani for a long time now. There is a natural tendency for humans to fight back when attacked. So, Sani is fight back by any means necessary – including call a governor, dwarf. I like dwarfs.

    San I is the equivalent of deranged fayose in the north. Never seen a senator of thesame party as the governor who started opposing the governor from day one. We have all seen now that Sami was never an activist or human rights advocate but just an attention seeker, a basted, a brainless man, a man who can never be a team player and a man full of contradiction. How dare sani opposing Mr. President in the Senate and constantly collaborating with pdp rouge people in the Senate? In our Great SW, idiots like sani will never get a second term to go to the Senate. He can only deceive the less educated people in kaduna and the north in general.

    To me Shehu Sani is the best Senator in Nigeria. If election were to be conducted between El Rufai and Shehu Sani today Shehu would defeat El Rufai. 60 to 70 percent of people of Kaduna state would vote for Shehu Sani. Shehu Sani is an asset to APC not a liability like El Rufai.

    Sabi is always in the news for fighting and abuses. He should take things cool and learn to work with others.
