Oshiomhole came too late, we are leaving – Sheu Sani


Senator Shehu Sani has said there is no going back on the decision of aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress in Kaduna State to leave the party.

Sani stated this during an interaction with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said if only the new National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, had assumed office earlier, the scenario could have been different.

But he said Oshiomhole was coming too late with this reconciliation agenda.

He described the situation that led to the crisis as grenade laid by the former National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, adding that they will explode in a matter of days.

He said: “I wish Adams has come earlier because like I said these grenades that were laid by the former chairman will explode in a matter of days.”

Sani said party leaders, including President Muhammadu Buhari, have proved incapable of handling the crisis.

He said the ward, local government and state congresses in Kaduna State were flawed and that complaints he and other party members lodged were ignored by the Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee.

He said: “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 call 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.

“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 (Aminu) Masari-led committee, which was also not respected and there as you can see, (Asiwaju Bola Ahmed) 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.”
