Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State under the auspices of ‘True APC’, AKIDA, said yesterday that expeling Senator Shehu Sani will ruin the party completely.
They frowned at the purported plans to expel the senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District from the party, describing it as the handiwork of hired agents which must be checked before it succeeds.
The group in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Murtala Abubakar, said “we have on many occasions made public our advice to the national leadership of our party to exercise its responsibility by bringing to an immediate end the drift arising from the absence of an effective and functional party in Kaduna State at all levels.
“The hijack of the remnant of our party by a clique that believes it owes its loyalty only to the governor has resulted in the abuse of power, lack of decorum and impunity. We wish to state clearly that the people engineering this crisis in the party are hired agents parading themselves as acting this and that, commissioned by external forces to put the party in perpetual state of crisis with the aim of placing it in severe disrepute and our members in a state of intense grief and confusion.
“We reiterate that no person shall exercise power outside the party’s constitution. people claiming power including power to query or discipline members should not themselves be holding power that are illegal. The right to free speech, to hold and express opinions are fundamental rights which our party should uphold, rather than breach. Every member should be free to express their opinion on governance at all levels, subject to the provisions of our party’s constitution. We shall sustain our effort to ensure that the APC sticks to its ideals and commitments,” the group stressed.
