All Progressives Congress, APC, Kaduna State chapter, said yesterday that it will not allow cabal and mischief makers destroy the party for their selfish interest.
Its acting Publicity Secretary, Salisu Tanko Wusono, while addressing a news conference in Kaduna over what he described as continuous attacks on party leaders by Senator Shehu Sani-led ‘APC AKIDA’ , said there is no room for egoism in the party, insisting that all efforts to reform Sani and his group have failed and they will soon be shown the way out.
Senator Shehu Sani (APC, Kaduna Central), a guber aspirant, Isa Ashiru, former Permanent Secretary, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, among others had introduced a group known as APC AKIDA.
But, according to the party’s spokesman, “We have tolerated this indisciplined group since 2014 because the party has a duty to train its members, but It appears that they are unwilling to be redeemed. They have remained hostile to the party and its structure, flouting its rules and refusing to respect the democratic choices made by our members.
“It is pertinent at this stage to chronicle the serial disrespect that this group of misguided persons has shown the party’s structure. They have exhibited unwillingness to accept and respect the democratic choices that our members have made.
“For instance, Baba-Ahmed, who was the interim Chairman of the party following the merger that produced the APC had expressed desire to emerge the substantive chairman. He did not get his wish. The party congress elected Architect Barnabas Yusuf Bala as chairman. From that point in 2014, he has tried to elevate himself above the party as if the without him there would be no APC.
“He has invested his time in creating structures extraneous to the party, calling themselves elders, stakeholders or other names. He accompanied his disdain for the state executive with a campaign against the emergence of General Muhammadu Buhari as the presidential candidate of the APC. He warned Buhari not to contest, but members of the APC nationwide thought differently and elected him as their presidential candidate.
‘‘Ashiru when he lost the governorship contest in 2015 wanted to be compensated with the senatorial ticket already won by Suleiman Hunkuyi, saying “that is the backward distributive tendency typical of the PDP and it is not welcomed in the APC.”
On Senator Sani, he added that “The APC does not have much to say about Sani, their partner in mischief and indiscipline. His opposition to President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Nasir El-rufai and the APC is well known. He would oppose anything that is good, progressive and would enhance the wellbeing of our people. He is part of those that defiled our party at the national level and foisted a strange leadership on the Senate,” Wusono said.
