A Group, All Progressives Congress (APC) Awareness Forum, has alleged that the Political Adviser to the Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, paid the sum N750,000 to the Kaduna North Ward 6 leaders to sign the reaffirmation of Senator Shehu Sani’s suspension.
Secretary, of group, Ado Muhammed Sani, during a Press Conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Secretariat, said the Political Adviser has become a desperado who want to become a Senator at all cost.
“Immediately after senate announced defectors, and Shehu Sani was not part of them, the political adviser of the governor, paid the ward leadership N750,000 to sign the letter because the Senator’s presence in the party will hamper his ambition.
The same people were giving 30,000 each two years ago to sign the suspension letter, and the former party chairman condemned and nullified it and said it was unconstitutional.
“Everybody have the right to contest the position, but what we are saying is that his aspirations should go along with the constitution of the party, because constitution provide that, “before a suspension of any senator, a letter should be written to him/her stating all the offences alleged to have been committed by him/her in order to defend himself/herself.”
Earlier, Chairman of the group, Bashir Yakubu, sad, “it is sad and regrettable that all the provisions of the party constitution were ignored by the state government which controls the party because of the selfish interest of the State Governor.”
According to him, “the illegal suspension of Senator Shehu Sani from the APC was an important issue that has received wide spread condemnation by members of the public. Shortly after the announcement of the illegal suspension, we began a thorough investigation and our findings revealed that the Ward executives of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), were given mouth watery financial inducements to carry out the illegal act.
“Interestingly, the state chairman of the party has described the so-called suspension as null and void because he knows the position of the constitution in this type of crucial political issue.
“Besides, if you could recall the former National chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun, while reacting to the illegal suspension, said that the suspension was null and void and that it was only the National Executive Committee that has the legal right to suspend members from the party.”
