Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Sen. Sani Shehu, has ridiculed the threat by the Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to expel him from the party, noting that although he is a hundred percent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, he will always air his opinion on issues in the country.
The party had on Thursday accused Sani of anti-party conduct for criticizing the new price of fuel introduced by the federal government last week, which jacked up the pump price of the product from N86 to N145 per litre.
Reacting to the threat on Friday through his Special Adviser on Politics and Ideology, Suleiman Ahmed, the senator described the party’s threat as mere hallucination.
Sani said although he remained “one hundred percent a supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, but he is neither a sycophant nor a hypocrite who will not speak his mind when there is the need to do so.”
He alleged that the state APC is a tool in hand of the Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led Kaduna government.
He said, “It will be interesting for the general public to know that even the so-called state headquarters of the APC is a building owned by a top PDP chieftain in the state.”
“The press conference and threat of expulsion made by one Tanko Wusono of Kaduna APC against comrade Senator Shehu Sani for objecting to the increase in pump price of petroleum products stands unambiguously condemned.
Kaduna APC as it exists today is simply an extension of El-Rufai’s government.”
