Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, has resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress.
Sani has sent his resignation letter dated October 19, to the chairman of the APC in ward 6, Tudun wada north, Kaduna.
The letter stated: “I present to you my highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer to you my resignation from the All Progressives Congress, APC.”
“l had joined the APC and remained with it against all odds in the belief that it will constitute a veritable platform for the realization of those democratic ideals which I hold very dear, that honor and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the patty and, most importantly, that internal party democracy will always be the norm. However, only posterity can affirm the extent to which the APC has committed to and reflected these values.
“As I exit the APC at this point in time. I wish to formally thank the party for availing me the platform upon which I am currently serving this country in the honoured capacity of Senator of the Federal Republic.
“I wish the party well in all her future endeavors and ask sir, that you please accept the assurance of my highest considerations.”
Realnews reports that national working committee, NWC, of the APC had cleared Sani as the only candidate for the senatorial district but Nasir el-Rufai, governor of the state, rejected it.
Subsequently, a primary election was conducted in the district and Uba Sani, the preferred candidate of the governor was declared winner.
The serving senator had boycotted the primary and filed an appeal which the party upheld but the Uba Sani’s name was sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
El Rufai and Shehu Sani has been at daggers drawn for a long time. – additional reports from TheCable
