Senator Shehu Sani, is presently without a party, after calling it quit with the ruling All Progressives Party (APC).

The senator representing Kaduna Central, resigned his membership of the APC following the controversies which trailed the party’s primaries for the 2019 elections.

According to The Guardian, Sani’s decision comes few days after the national body of the APC submitted the name of Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s political adviser, Uba Sani, as the candidate to replace Sani’s senatorial district.

There is a deep-rooted animosity between the Kaduna State governor and Sani which traced back to 2015 after their inauguration.

In August, Sani alongside Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi was accused of working against the progress of the party and the state in connivance. The duo was consequently suspended by the Kaduna state chapter on the APC.

While Hunkuyi dumped the party to the People’s Democratic Party, Sani remained in APC.

But, with the Kaduna APC senatorial ticket now won by Uba Sani, an aide to El-Rufai, it became obvious for Sen. Sani to leave the party.

According to Sani resignation letter: “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).

“I have joined the APC and remained with it against all odds in the belief that it will consider a veritable platform for the realization of those democratic idea 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 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.” The letter read.
