The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, Said As the Ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) grapples with the threat of possible defection of its members, it is now very clear that “the crisis in the party has defied the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
This is coming as the new National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, has berated those he described as frequent defectors, saying they have shown that they have no regard for principles and values.
Sani who is representing the people of Kaduna Central Senatorial district in the Senate, noted that efforts by various committees so far set up to arrest the situation by the party leaders have proved abortive.
Speaking during the launching of a book on the former Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa, titled: ‘The Voice of The Masses’, Sani expressed the fears that the accumulated crisis in the party may be beyond the capacity of Oshiomohle to address.
While congratulating the new APC national chairman, Sani said “ Adams Oshiomhole has inherited a party in cold war, but I wish him well.
First of all I believe in Oshiomhole, a true comrade but Chief Oyegun left behind unexploded bombs in the party, which certainly may be beyond the capacity of Oshiomhole to address.”
Speaking on the crisis in the Kaduna State chapter of the APC, Sani said Governor Nasiru El-Rufai has converted the party into his own personal franchise.
He said there were no congresses in the state but that rather, the governor simply removed people who have different opinions other than his own and planted his loyalists.
He unleashed reign of terror on members of the party. The governor has destroyed the very basis and foundation of the party in that state,” Sani said.
According to Sani, El-rufai has shown disrespect for the leadership of APC and the presidency by shunning peace efforts initiated by both the presidency and the party.
As you can see, Tinubu’s attempt to reconcile members of the party was simply naturalised and abandoned. So we are not slaves to continue to be in that party.
