Shehu Sani remains suspended from the APC, Kaduna governor El-Rufai insists

160

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, Friday, revealed that Senator Shehu Sani, remains suspended from the ruling APC party for sabotage and must apologize to people of the state for him to receive any form of redemption.

“He has to repent; he has to tell Kaduna people why he sabotaged them.

“He has to also go back to the ward level, because as far as we are concerned he remains suspended from the party”, El-Rufai said.

The governor lamented how Senator Sani and some others in the Senate opposed his $350m World Bank loan request at the Nigerian Senate floor.

Sani had distanced himself from those defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a meeting with the President.

“I am here as a member of the APC caucus in the Senate. My presence here does not mean that my issue has been resolved 100 percent but I am of the belief that we have a leader in the party who is doing everything possible to see that the problems that we have that led to a revolt are resolved.

“Revolt at times is most necessary. In fact, APC itself is a reflection of revolt, he said Wednesday night after a caucus meeting with the president.

” It revolted against the system of iniquity, and today it is in power. I am here because I believe in the leadership of the party. I believe also in the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari. I also believe there are no issues that we cannot solve as human being, as men of conscience. I believe that the discussions we have had here is reassuring, soothing and comforting that a process has started to heal the wounds and address issues that led us to where we are today.
