The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed Senator Shehu Sani for forming a splinter group of the party in the state.

On Friday, June 3, 2016, Sani and some key APC members in Kaduna state formed a group known as APC Akida (a Hausa word which means“Our interest”).

The party said they are united, adding that they support the administration of the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

The acting publicity secretary of Kaduna state APC, Salisu Wusono said "As a party, the Kaduna State APC stands united behind governor Nasir El-Rufai, in delivering service for our people. Our party was elected to lead change and bring development, not to pander to the ego of people.

“Those who think that nothing can be right if they are not the drivers and condemn laudable initiatives just because they are not treated as masters should reconsider their conduct.”

Adding that “The APC Kaduna State cannot be factionalised. We will not tolerate indiscipline. We have given people enough time to adjust to the reality that they are not in a position to hold the party or the process of change to ransom just because of their personal interests.

“Some people lost their bid to occupy the office of chairman; others were soundly defeated in the gubernatorial primaries. Despite this, the party tried to carry them along. But they stood aloof during the campaigns, some even went as far as cooperating with the PDP.

“We heard that a group of persons sat with a suspended senator to announce an illegal and unrecognized group. They are hereby warned to desist.”

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai paid a condolence visit to Senator Shehu Sani following the death of his mother, Hajiya Fatima Abubakar Sani.
