After what appears to be a political bloody nose from the All Progressives Congress (APC) which may have sent the name of a special adviser to Governor Nasir el Rufai, Uba Sani, to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the party’s candidate for Kaduna Central, has forced Senator, Shehu Sani, to resign from the ruling party.
Sani was named as sole candidate for the primary election of the party, but APC still sent officials to conduct elections where Rufai’s adviser won.
Though he is yet to give details, it was gathered that Senator Sani was traded off in a delicate horse-trading that caught him off-guard. He has been on social media gloating over his triumph over his governor and political foe, unknown to him, his political coffin had been nailed.
A source said though the list sent to INEC was kept top secret, he used some connections to peep into it and saw he had been outsmarted by his governoŕ and the APC leadership.
One source said, “someone in Kaduna told someone in the APC leadership of what appears to be an illegal structure of a home built in Kaduna and the rest is history.”
In his letter to his APC ward in Kaduna, Sani wrote: “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.”
