All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday described the suspension of Senator Shehu Sani as a charade, saying the ward executives who carried out the purported suspension where bribed with five hundred thousand naira.

APC Chairman of Ward 10 in ‎Kaduna South Local Government area of Kaduna State, Architect Ado Mohammed Sani, disclosed during a press conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna.

Arc Sani, who is also the Secretary of the Forum of Ward Chairmen in the local government, said the local government is not aware of the letter of suspension of Senator Sani.

“I wonder why the so called suspension letter was not signed by the ward 6 chairman, and why one of the signatories of the letter was an impostor,” he said.

On the alleged bribe, Arc Ado said: “A meeting of the ward excos was facilitated by the Senior Special Adviser on Trade and Investment to the Ggovernor, Mukhtar Ahmed Monrovia, where the excos were given the said N500,000 to carry out the so called suspension.

“The meeting was facilitated by the Senior Special Adviser on Trade and Investment Mukhtar Ahmed Monrovia at the Polo club in Murtala Square where he gave them N500,000 and promised them a lot more to come.

“They signed the document they thought was an attendance only for some of them to discover that what they signed was a suspension letter.”

Arc Sani added: “As a way of finding solution to the matter, we the Forum of Chairmen of the local government invited Comrade Shehu Sani‎ and we had a meeting with him where we told him we were not happy with what was going on between him and the governor.

“Thereafter, we invited the Senior Special Adviser on Trade and Investment to the Governor and we had a meeting with him the same day and pleaded that he arrange a meeting between us and the executive governor and told him all that transpired between us and the Senator who is ready for a round table to address the matter.

“He promised to facilitate a meeting between the forum and the governor. On Monday I called him on the said meeting, he told me he was at home and promised ‎to call; he actually called but said the Governor was out of town.

“But, to our chagrin, this same person who was supposed to facilitate a meeting between us and the governor, went ahead to organise a meeting between the EXCO of Ward Six Tudun Wada at Murtala Square – to be precise, at Polo Club – where he gave them N500,000 and a lot of promises that they should sign a paper for him.

“Most of them that signed the paper said they did not know what they signed and at the end of the day, we met some of these excos who cannot even speak English who said they thought what they signed was an attendance paper.

“We are calling on all our party members irrespective of whoever side you are, the Governor and the Senator owed Kaduna people a lot, because we went out to campaign and rally support for them, so what Kaduna people expect from them is dividends of democracy and development.

“The crisis is not going to urgur well for the party in the state, some people are talking of suspension, so somebody cannot be suspended through a fake arrangement through somebody we thought will help to bring about the resolution of the conflict."”

Arc Sani said what is happening today is not normal and called on all parties involved to embrace peace.

Efforts to get any of the government officials to speak on the matter were not successful. Government official contacted declined to make any comment on the issue and pleaded also that their names should not be mentioned.
