Why Sen. Sani called for the rescue of APC Kaduna chapter

By Ayodeji Babatunde


Crisis rocking All Progressives Congress (APC) Kaduna Chapter escalated during last week' Saturday local government election which Senator Shehu Sani described as shambolic.

It was because of this crisis that Sani called on the national leadership of the party to settle the anomaly while speaking with newsmen on Monday in Abuja, after a closed-door meeting with National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

Sani accused the party leadership in the state of doctoring the delegates  in order to satisfy their interest.

“They sat down in the palace of their gods to write names and send it down here for us to accept; that can never happen,” he said.

He warned that APC should put it house in order by addressing the problem  so as not to face similar problem that led to the crisis of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

 “This was the seed of the destruction of the PDP, where individuals considered themselves as gods and any other person a slave; that will never happen in Kaduna state.

“We are here to present our case and to appeal to the instrument of the leadership of this party to intervene in the Kaduna issue before it becomes too late.

“We are here to also state it to the party´s national leadership that we are under siege in Kaduna

“The use of thugs and violence by agents and close associates of the state government is one thing we cannot tolerate,” Sani said.

He decried the recent raiding of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) secretariat in Kaduna by thugs during a press briefing after the councils’ election, during which journalists were injured.

He said that such was the trait of the APC, and urged its leadership to set up an investigation panel to bring the perpetrators of the disturbances.

The lawmaker alleged that the thugs were acting in concert with the police in the state.

“If we continue on this part, where one person feels he is a god, I think we are simply repeating the very problem that destroyed the party we ejected out of power,” he said.

He maintained that there was a need for APC to provide the vehicle for real change for the country to change and tasked members to change the manner they played politics.
