Elders beg national leaders to intervene in the ongoing APC crisis

The Suspension of Shehu Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central has caused further crises in the party with the acting Chairman seeking intervention from the National Chairman in Abuja, John Odigie Oyegun.

Senator Sani was suspended by the leadership of his word in Tudun Wada for allegedly violating the rules of the party. Some party members believed that the Senator was suspended over his frequent criticism of Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai.

The crises has prompted Kaduna State Acting Chairman of the APC, Alhaji Shuabu Idris to write the party's National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, to call North West National Vice Chairman, Inuwa Abdulkadir, to order over what he described as provocative statements against state officials.

Idris in the letter dated 12th January, 2016 and addressed to Oyegun, as obtained by Pulse said the party's North West Vice Chairman held a meeting with a group and declared Shehu Sani's suspension illegal and void.

"We are therefore baffled, because for one, the national vice chairman did not make contact with the state party structure in the state, the highest leadership organ in the state that suspended Senator Shehu Sani. We were not aware of his visit nor were we invited to the so called reconciliatory meeting,” the letter reads.

"It is rather confusing for us that a national vice chairman would come to a state for an official party function and will choose not to make contact with the state party secretariat. It is even more worrying for us when we recall sad memories of the role the same Inuwa Abdulkadir played in the pre- presidential primary election of 2015,when he tried to change the list of delegates from Kaduna State in favour of a different presidential candidate rather than Buhari,” Idris said in the letter.

Idris alleged that Inuwa Abdulkadir had earlier on made efforts to influence the gubernatorial primaries that produced Governor, Malam Nasir El-rufai.
