The senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district in the National Assembly, Sen. Shehu Sani has disclosed that some prominent members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State will soon quit the party.
He told reporters in Abuja on Tuesday that the move could be as early as next week.
Sani blamed Kaduna Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai for victimising other political party leaders in the state and berated the former APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and the presidency for failing to call him to order.
He added that the coming of new National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole came too late.
“I wish Adams had come earlier because like I said these grenades that were laid by the former chairman will explode in a matter of days.”
He added, “It is also very clear to us that even President Muhammadu Buhari is incapable of tackling the menace of the governor of Kaduna state.
“How can a governor , openly called for violence against Senators and not a statement came from the seat of power cautioning such a governor ?
“How can a governor move bulldozers and demolish a house of a fellow party member , the one who helped him to be where he is and there is not even a statement from the presidency?
“The governor uses the machinery of the state to emasculate political opponents . He even framed me for murder and there was no statement that came from the presidency to caution such a governor.
“Virtually Kaduna state under governor El -Rufai does not create conducive environment for any of us to remain in that party ( APC ).”
He disclosed, “There were three attempts to resolve the Kaduna APC crisis ; there was Inuwa Abdulkadir committee which was never respected by the governor , there was the governor Masari – led committee which was also not respected and there as you can see, Tinubu’s attempt to reconcile members of the party was simply naturalized and abandoned . So we are not slaves to continue to be in that party.”
