APC Threatens To Expel Sani For Attacking Buhari

apc leadersThe All Progressives Congress in Kaduna State on Thursday threatened to expel the senator representing Kaduna-Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani, for attacking President Muhammadu Buhari.

The party, through its state’s acting Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Tanko Salisu-Wusono, asked Sani to desist from attacking the President or risk expulsion from the party.

The state chapter of the party threatened to suspend Sani over allegations bordering on indiscipline, disloyalty as well as other anti-party activities.

Sani had on Wednesday alleged that the Federal Government was on a campaign of calumny against the Nigeria Labour Congress because the union was speaking the minds of the poor in Nigeria.

The Kaduna senator, in a statement issued on Wednesday, said, “The intimidation against the NLC must stop. The systemic and orchestrated campaign of calumny against the NLC must stop.”

However, while addressing a news conference in Kaduna, the spokesman for the Kaduna APC declared support for the Federal Government’s decision to remove subsidy on subsidy, saying the subsidy had milked the country dry and caused untold hardship to Nigerians.

Salisu-Wusono said it was wrong of Sani, who was among the senators that passed the 2016 budget which had no provision for fuel subsidy, to now attack Buhari for removing subsidy from fuel.

He added that Sani’s attacks against Buhari began last year.

He said that Sani allegedly ganged up with some senators who defied the APC and foisted a strange leadership on the Senate.

“Shehu Sani followed up by attacking the President for fighting corruption,” he said.

He explained that the APC in the state decided to teach Sani a lesson in party discipline with the hope that he would change his attitude.

He said, “He (Sani) was placed on suspension, but rather than learn his lesson and show remorse, he has chosen to continue to show disloyalty to the APC and President Buhari. Given his disregard for the party, the APC Kaduna State has no option but to take further disciplinary measures that may lead to his expulsion.”

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Politics and Ideology, Alhaji Suleiman Ahmed, at a press conference on Thursday, in Kaduna, Sani said he would not be intimidated by the party’s threat of expulsion.

Ahmed said Sani had the right to go against any anti-masses policy, adding that the senator’s position on issues pertaining to the common man would never change.
