Shehu Sani speaks to Nigerians on defection from APC

A Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, on Friday hinted Nigerians that he has not yet dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress for another party, saying the consultations were still going on with the APC future.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja, Senator Sani also said he would make pronouncement when the time comes, possibly in a matter of weeks either to remain or dump APC.

He said, “I am yet to defect or decamp or migrate from the APC to any other party.

“However, discussions and consultations are ongoing as regard to our future in the Party.

“Decision will be taken in a matter of week or two whether to remain in the party or migrate.

“When the time comes, I will make a formal announcement on the floor of the Senate, my Facebook and Twitter handle,” he said.

The senator’s response came owing to reports earlier on Friday that him and a fellow senator from his state, Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi had left the APC. The report was credited to the Hunkuyi-led faction of the APC.

The group, which is said to be known as APC Akida, purportedly made the statement in Kaduna. Meanwhile, Sani had said via his Facebook handle that

“We the persecuted are on Exodus, riding on horses, chariots and caravans, departing Pharaoh Thutmose’s Egypt.

“We are now at the coast of the Red Sea, about to leave the land of cruelty and injustice.”

The lawmaker has been having running battle with his state Governor, Nasir El-rufai, who also belongs to the APC. There are indications that Sani is nursing the idea of picking a governorship ticket for the 2019 election, a decision which he claimed had pitched him against the governor among other things.
