The Tudun Wada ward of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna South Local Government of Kaduna State, on Monday suspended the Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, from the party.

The Senator is a registered member of the party from the Tudun Wada ward.

The ward chapter of the party in a letter to the Senator dated December 27, 2015 said the suspension is for a period of 11 months and that henceforth the Senator is disengaged from partaking in or attending party activities in Kaduna State.

In the letter signed by the Ward Secretary, Ahmed Abdulhamid, Public Relations Officer, Auwal Mai Anguwa, and Ex-Officio member, Aminu Alilan, the party listed Sani’s offences to include uttering statements that allegedly “violate the rules of engagement of the party, factionalizing  the party, and engaging in anti party activities by criticizing the policies of Governor Nasir ElRufai.”

They added: “Hardly a week passes by his group will not be on air criticizing and challenging the enduring legacies of Mallam Nasir ElRufai, that his statement on national issues is not in conformity with that of the state government and government of Kaduna State.”

The letter also said the senator has chosen to remain in constant confrontation with the government of Kaduna State.

Political aide to Senator Sani, Mr. Suleiman Ahmed, when contacted, said it was clear that those who wrote the letter are ignorant of the laws guiding the APC.

He said though it is clear from the letter that the people are out to stop the Senator from voicing out his views about what he considers as the anti-people policies of the El-Rufai administration, that it will not stop him from expressing his views when he feels the policies are not for the good of the people of the state.

“They are toeing the line of the state secretariat of the party, so our reaction is that those that wrote this letter are ignorant of the party constitution and they are dancing to the tune of the state executive of the party and Governor Nasir El-Rufai,” he said.
