Chairman, Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts, Senator Shehu Sani, APC, Kaduna Central, and the state chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, were, yesterday, locked in a war of words over the former’s suspension.
While Senator Sani declared that his suspension would not stand, the state APC described his attack on the party as uncouth, shameless and disgraceful. Sani, who accused Kaduna State governor, Nasir el-Rufai, of instigating his suspension, said in a statement yesterday:
“For a man who has been unable to address the pervasive insecurity and genocide in southern Kaduna, for a man who has been unable to stem the tide of rampant kidnapping and abductions in Kaduna, suspending Shehu Sani cannot be counted as an achievement.”
Acting Publicity Secretary of the party, Salisu Tanko Wusono, in a statement, said: “Shehu Sani’s outburst is a confirmation that he has no sense of shame. He is a man full of tantrums, a man, who simultaneously entertains and distresses people with his shameless antics.
“He has since lost focus and why he was elected to the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by the good people of Kaduna Central under the banner of the APC.
“We suspended him indefinitely, following his various anti-party activities and utterances aimed at tearing the party into pieces.
“The masses of Kaduna Central have since unravelled his deceit. His heart and mind are in the PDP whose agent he has been in our party.
