Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani, threatens to sue own party, APC

Shehu Sani

The senator representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, on Wednesday, threatened to sue his party, the All Progressive Congress, over what he described as false allegations against him.

Mr. Sani also threatened a lawsuit if the party fails to withdraw a letter to him alleging anti-party activities.

“If in the next one week, the party excos in the state fail to withdraw a letter sent to him on the allegation that he was involved in anti party activities, he will take a legal action against the party,” Mr. Sani, who was represented at a news briefing by his senior legislative aide and his campaign director general, Rabiu Khaleed, said.

On Tuesday, a group within the party threatened to sack the senator from the party for refusing to honour their invitation.

According to the party in the state, the senator needed to clear his name off the allegations levelled against him.

But Mr. Sani says he does not recognize the state’s party executives.

He described them as a purported group “being sponsored by the state government to tarnish his name.

” This is our stand. We will not honour an invitation by kangaroo executives in the state. APC executives are not in existence in the state. We are, therefore, urging them to withdraw the letter sent to us within a week or we will take legal action against them.

“Senator Shehu Sani will not honour their invitation because he doesn’t recognize them as state executives of the party. They are only claiming to be APC members but we know they are only doing a bid for the state governor.

“Since our election, no party executive in the state deemed it fit to write to Senator Sani to inform him of any party activities despite being a party stakeholder. Therefore, he will not honour any invitation from anybody because there are no recognized party leaders in the state,” he said.

The senator also stated that Kaduna APC is in disarray and has since lost its footing and courage.

He also denied the allegation that he was involved in anti-party activities.

    Shehu sani should know that he cant win again 2019 with this his bad attitude towards his party. He will regret it soon.

  • Maitama Tambari

    Unfortunately Shehu Sani is a sick person who got drunk with his unfortunate election as a Senator. The State should impeach him as a wrong representative.

    Discerning observer of National Assembly politics would have since observed and concluded that Senator Sanni is a mole in APC. He is more of PDP than the APC he is pretending to profess. His anti-party activities are not hidden and he stands for everything that APC decides to stand against. APC will be better off without him and his leader in the Senate.

    A bad product of ”APC Sak”. Shehu Sani is one of those persons who benefitted from Buhari’s popularity and the people’s hate for PDP. But let him know this, he will go down in Kaduna history as a ”One Term Senator”. His illusions and delusions will clear come 2019 insha Allah.

  • Ismail Ibrahim Bakori

    Senator Shehu Sani may Allah continue to protect him is our hero and we will continue to stand by him against forces of political darkness. They are so intolerant to the extent of replicating their democratic tactics and tendencies of politics of exclusion a stock in trade of some of them that were major beneficiaries of the PDP in the past. The set of people fighting Shehu Sani are the desperate political prostitute surreptitiously plotting to hijack the party in order to contest 2019 presidential election. In the day time they are with Buhari while in the night they are pursuing their own agenda in conspiracy with their vampire political bed fellows..
