The senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to the letter dated October 19 and addressed to the chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, the senator did not give reasons for his action.
He also sent his resignation letter to the chairman of the APC in ward 6, Tudun wada north, Kaduna.
He wrote: “I present to you my highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer to you my resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“l had joined the APC and remained with it against all odds in the belief that it will constitute a veritable platform for the realization of those democratic ideals which I hold very dear, that honour and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the patty and, most importantly, that internal party democracy will always be the norm.
“However, only posterity can affirm the extent to which the APC has committed to and reflected these values.
“As I exit the APC at this point in time. I wish to formally thank the party for availing me the platform upon which I am currently serving this country in the honoured capacity of Senator of the Federal Republic.
“I wish the party well in all her future endeavours and ask sir, that you please accept the assurance of my highest considerations.”
The lawmaker had lost his return ticket to the National Assembly after losing to Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s political aide, Uba Sani.
The leadership of the APC had on Thursday submitted the name of Uba Sani to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as its candidate for the Southern Kaduna senatorial district, despite allegedly promising Shehu Sani automatic ticket.
