The Kaduna State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday raised the alarm that the suspended Kaduna Central district’s senator, Comrade Shehu Sani has perfected plans to join the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
APC said it has uncovered further evidence of anti-party activities by Senator Shehu Sani.
A statement issued and signed by Kaduna State APC’s Assistant Publicity Secretary, Hon. Salisu Tanko Wusono, said that: “Rather than show remorse or any intention to improve his behaviour in the direction of greater discipline and loyalty to the APC, Shehu Sani has decided to embrace the ways of the PDP.”
The APC accused Sani of holding meetings with the PDP: “before and after the party slammed an 11-month suspension on him, with the intention to defect.”
Wusono explained that, the APC is vindicated in its decision to suspend him by Sani’s decision to persist in activities aimed at undermining the APC.
According to the APC spokesperson, “The Senator had in the series of his anti-party activities met with chieftains of the opposition (PDP) and received another delegation of PDP from Southern Kaduna Zone on 16 January, 2016.
“The suspended Senator is presently meeting with chieftains of PDP in the state and working assiduously with them to organize how they can undermine the APC leadership and the government of the state.
“On 16th January, 2016, Senator Shehu Sani hosted a meeting with some PDP chieftains in the residence of one Madam Madaki. At the meeting, he denigrated the APC leadership and discussed his forthcoming defection to the PDP. He assured the the PDP of his determination to wreck maximum damage on the APC before his defection.
“We make bold to say that Shehu Sani’s plot will fail, because the APC will only wax stronger without ill-disciplined and disloyal persons like him whose true home is the PDP.”
