Gov. El-Rufai’s aide allegedly bribed APC officials to expel Senator Shehu Sani – APC wardThe All Progressives Congress, APC, executive members of Tudun Wada North, Ward 6, Kaduna South local government area, have accused aides of Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai of bribing some of their members with N3m to expel Senator Shehu Sani from the party.
Addressing a press conference in Kaduna, Sunday, the ward chairman of the party, Abbas Mohammed Anni, said they decided to bring to the notice of the public, “moves by some unscrupulous elements acting on the orders of the State Governor and his cronies to create rancor and disaffection within the APC in Kaduna State.”
According to him, “We have been reliably informed that the political advisers to the State Governor held a closed door meeting with few members of this Exco and bribed them with the sum of Three Million Naira (N3,000,000.00) just to engineer the expulsion of one of our most illustrious leader in person of Sen. Shehu Sani.
“It is very unfortunate that this ugly move is propping up again after the disgraceful episode of a Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00) bribe that was purportedly given by the same set of people to instigate the alleged suspension of Sen. Shehu Sani about a year ago.
“At this point in time when our state is faced with unprecedented cases of kidnapping, armed banditry in Birnin Gwari, Wanton killings that could be likened to a genocide in the Southern parts of the State, it is expected that our governor should have channeled state resources into curbing these menace, instead of wasting money and valuable time on fighting imaginary enemies.
“It is now over a year and half since the inception of the Buhari-led government, states with focused leadership have commissioned numerous developmental projects, it saddens our hearts that our state Kaduna State cannot boast of even a single project that was completed and commissioned under its present leadership.
“Instead the government has only succeeded in throwing the APC in Kaduna State into turmoil.“
He emphasized that, “NOBODY can bulldoze or entice us to make the suicidal move of expelling Sen. Shehu Sani who is the most visible and most performing elected officer in Kaduna State from APC.vHow Gov. El-Rufai’s aide allegedly bribed APC officials to expel Senator Shehu Sani – APC ward
