Sani’s senior assistant, Political and Ideology, Suleiman Ahmed said the letter was rejected on grounds that the senator neither knows the person who signed the letter nor the party's office address.
He said he was not notified about the APC new state chairman and secretary and would not respond to their invitation.
He noted that the two officers are mere extensions of government house and accused Gov. El-Rufai of sponsoring them to suspend him out of fear of his overwhelming popularity and performance.
