Kaduna APC cri­sis must be tamed — Shehu Sani

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

Se­na­tor Shehu Sani (APC, Kaduna Cen­tral), has called on the na­tional lead­er­ship of the APC to wade into the cri­sis in Kaduna State be­fore it gets out of hand.

He said the party must work to­wards en­trench­ment of in­ter­nal democ­racy to avoid fall­ing into the pit­falls that killed former rul­ing par­ties such as the PDP.

Sani, who is the Chair­man, Se­nate Com­mit­tee on Lo­cal and For­eign Debts, in a chat with Daily Trust, in La­gos, said congress was never held in Kaduna, stress­ing that mem­bers of the party would not con­done tyranny by an in­di­vid­ual.

Sani and Gov­er­nor Nasir el-Ru­fai have been in a seem­ing un­end­ing row since 2015 soon af­ter they won their var­i­ous of­fices un­der the APC.

Mak­ing ref­er­ence to the re­cent at­tack on his per­son, Se­na­tor Suleiman Hunkuyi and some jour­nal­ists, at the NUJ Cen­tre in Kaduna, Se­na­tor Sani said the na­tional lead­er­ship of the APC should not turn a blind eye to de­vel­op­ments in Kaduna.

“We are de­sirous of see­ing the party suc­ceed in 2019; but we would not in any way fold our arms and see one per­son go into the rooms and write the names of del­e­gates and send it to Abuja; that will never hap­pen. So that’s our po­si­tion,” he said.
