Kaduna State Senator, Shehu Sani, is again at daggers drawn with the governor of the State, Nasir El-Rufai, over the lawmaker’s public criticism of the governor.

Sani is calling out El-Rufai over the recent reports that he has been suspended by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State, a move the senator described as worthless as “used tissue paper”.

In a statement on Wednesday, Sani said the purported suspension was orchestrated by El-Rufai, adding that  party’s executive in the state were being induced and controlled by the governor.

Recall that the lawmaker had earlier been suspended by the state APC but the suspension was overturned by the national leadership of the Party.



    He said the “new suspension” would not give the leaders of the party in the state “the public support they couldn’t gather with the “first suspension””.

    Sani stated, “For a man who has been unable to address the pervasive insecurity and genocide in southern Kaduna; for a man who has been unable to stem the tide of rampant kidnapping and abductions in Kaduna, “suspending” Shehu Sani cannot be counted as an achievement.”

    The lawmaker advised President Muhammadu Buhari to be careful of El-Rufai, whom he described as having been nurtured by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

    He maintained that the “suspension” would not stop him from working for the good his constituents and the Nigerian masses in general.
