The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has warned Senator Shehu Sani against what it described as his “irresponsible utterances” about the party and its elected leaders.
A statement by Salisu Wusono, the State Publicity Secretary of the APC, dismissed the Senator, who is currently on suspension, as desecrating the image of the party, noting that that is why he was suspended.
“This is a man who seems unable to believe his good fortune at riding on the Buhari wave to become a Senator,” Wusono said. “He hardly waited to arrive in Abuja before enlisting as an agent of the forces who began to plot for 2019 before they were even sworn-in following the 2015 elections.”
The party further stated that Sani tried to rubbish President Muhammadu Buhari by describing the anti-corruption crusade as political, but is now pretending to love Buhari by needlessly attacking Kaduna State Governor Malam Nasir El-Rufai on behalf of those funding his immature politics.
Warning that the guilty are indeed afraid, it said that Sani’s masters, who defied the APC for their selfish ends, know that Nigerians are aware of those whose 2019 calculations made them impervious to reason and party discipline.
“The APC Kaduna State is proud of the vigorous and disciplined way Malam Nasir El-Rufai is governing Kaduna State in line with the manifesto of the APC,” the statement continued. “In Education, Health, Agriculture and general governance reforms, El-Rufai is making strides. He has demonstrated an exemplary focus on the responsibility the people of Kaduna State has given him. His loyalty to the APC and the great work that President Buhari is doing is visible for all.”
The party further called on Nigerians to ignore Sani, describing him as “a man who cannot grasp that leadership is not an ego trip or a perpetual exercise in narcissism.”
