Senator Sani remains suspended in APC, says Official

14 January 2016, 07:02

Kaduna - The All Progressives Congress (APC), Kaduna State chapter, said on Wednesday that Senator Shehu Sani remained suspended from activities of the party for 11 months.

The spokesperson of the APC in the state, Salisu Wusono, said this while addressing journalists in Kaduna.

Wusono urged the public and party loyalists to disregard the information circulated by the party's national vice chairperson (North West), Inuwa AbdulKadir, during a news conference on Monday in Kaduna

It would be recalled that, the vice chairperson had on Monday said that Sani's suspension was ``invalid and of no consequence whatsoever``.

Wusono said that Abdulkadir acted without the consent of the party's national leadership, adding that such action violated Section 21 of APC's constitution.

He said that the national vice chairperson’s action was a deliberate attempt to ridicule the party in the state, for personal interest.

``The 11 month suspension slammed on Shehu Sani by the Kaduna State APC stands.

‘’Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir does not have the power to lift the suspension and was acting on his own without any authorisation by the national leadership of the party.

``What happened on Monday in Kaduna between Abdulkadir and the so-called APC chieftains was an abuse of his office in promoting the narrow agenda of people who have never been interested in the progress and success of the APC,’’ he said.

Wusono said that Abdulkadir by his conduct, had embarrassed the national leadership and loyal membership of the APC.

``The national leadership of APC, President Buhari and his Vice- President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and other leaders of the party are aware of Shehu Sani’s anti-party activities at the federal and state levels.

``Sani stands suspended from participating in all APC activities, that is the reason why he did not attend President Buhari and Vice President Osibanjo’s functions in Kaduna.

``All the 11 APC lawmakers in House of Reps from the state are loyal to our leadership. All the 28 APC lawmakers in the Kaduna State House of Assembly are standing by the party and its government.
