Senator Shehu Sani says the only difference between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) lies in the names, nothing more.
Senator Sani stated this in Abeokuta on Thursday, January 18, 2019.
The Kaduna lawmaker disclosed that some members of the APC are not comfortable with the happenings within the ruling party.
He expressed displeasure over the attitude of some of his colleagues as regards the killings in Benue state and other parts of the country.
“All is not well with this country. This is the wrong time to shed blood in Nigeria. If you think that people in power will stop the problem in the country, you are in for a fool’s ride," Senator Sani said.
"The attention of people is how to win elections and not how they can end senseless killings and bloodshed. It would require a mass, peaceful march in the streets from Nigerians to recharge the conscience of people in power.
“Nigerians are dying in hundreds and in thousands and some people felt what is important is INEC timetable, when is elections and when is primaries.
“It is difficult to hear any public office holder speak the truth because of political calculations. Anybody who says we are not in crisis now is deceiving himself.
“We are only differentiated by names. The PDP came into existence because there is a need to have a national party that will take over from the military. The APC came into power to de-establish the PDP and drive Jonathan out of power and in the process, we have all sorts of people.
“When I see some of my colleagues trying to come into our party, I ask them: have you find out how those of us in the party are faring? Most of you will end up from Syria to Afghanistan. All is not well with this country," he added.
Senator Sani had earlier advised President Muhammadu Buhari to forget his reelection bid and focus on ending the killings by Fulani herdsmen across the country.
