IBILE.TV NEWS – The senator representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, has quit the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Senator Sani had been at loggerheads with Governor Nasir El Rufai and it was widely speculated that he would be part of the defectors who switched loyalties before the parties held their primaries but had stayed back due to persuasion by the party’s national leadership, who offered him an automatic ticket to contest for the senate again.
In a primary election which Senator Shehu Sani boycotted, Uba Sani, an aide of Governor El-Rufai, emerged winner.
TheCable reports that the Senator sent his resignation letter to the chairman of ward 6, Tudun Wada north, Kaduna state.
The letter follows below:
_“I present to you highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer to you my resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC). I had joined the APC and remained with it against all odds with the belief that it will constitute a veritable platform for the realization of those democratic ideals which I hold very dear, that honour and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the party 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 endeavours and ask, Sir, that you please accept the assurance of my highest considerations.”_
