Senator Shehu Sani has been suspended by the All Progressives Congress (APC) for anti-partyactivities and other offences.

Sani, who represents Kaduna Central senatorial zone, has been suspended for a period of eleven months by the Tudun Wada ward of the APC.

Tudun Wada APC in a letter addressed to Sani on Sunday, December 27, 2015 which was signed by the secretary of the ward, Ahmed Abdulhamid, the Public Relations Officer, Auwal Mai Anguwa, and ex-officio member, Aminu Alilan, stated that the suspension would run 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, the party listed the offences of Sani aside choosing to remain confrontational with the state government and Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai 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 El-Rufai.”

“Hardly a week passes by that his group will not be on air criticising and challenging the enduring legacies of Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, that his statement on national issues is not in conformity with that of the state government and government of Kaduna State,” it stated.
