Lawmaker threatens to sue APC in Kaduna over suspension

Sani made this known when he spoke through his Senior Legislative Assistant and Director General of his campaign organisation, Alhaji Rabiu Khalid at a press conference in Kaduna.

 

Senator Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, has disclosed his plans to sue the Kaduna Chapter of his party, the All Progressives Congress over his purported suspension.

Sani made this known when he spoke through his Senior Legislative Assistant and Director General of his campaign organisation, Alhaji Rabiu Khalid at a press conference in Kaduna.

Khalid stressed that if the state chapter of the party fails to retrace its step on the plan to suspend him as a member, Sani would be forced to institute an action at the court.

It was also gathered that rancour between Sani and the party kicked off after a faction of the party had invited him to appear before a disciplinary committee within seven days over what was termed his “anti party stand.”

Khalid also alleged that the activities of the Senator, which are tagged anti-party, is as a result of his outburst on some of the lapses of the state governor, Gov. Nasir el-Rufai.

Khalid added: “What they call anti-party are his criticism of the government’s anti-people policies and programmes, which is obvious to everyone in the state.

'From now till 2019, Sani will continue to challenge any of Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s policy suspected or adjudged to be anti-masses.'

'This is out of fear of his overwhelming popularity and performances,' Khalid accused the state governor.
