Senator representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, has described the threat by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to suspend him as the hallucination of a barely educated ‘ogogoro’ (local gin) drinker.

In a statement issued Friday morning through his Special Adviser on Politics and Ideology, Suleiman Ahmed, the Senator equally dismissed allegations by the Kaduna Chapter of the party the he (Sani) is not a supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Senator Sani said: “The press conference and threat of expulsion made by one Tanko Wusono of Kaduna APC, Cgainst comrade Senator Shehu Sani, for objecting to the increase in pump price of petroleum products, stands unambiguously condemned. Kaduna APC as it exists today is simply an extension of El-Rufai’s government.

“The press conference is the hands of Jacob and the voice of Esau. The said Tanko Wusono is the special assistant to El-Rufai’s Commissioner for local government, Bashir Saidu, at the same time member of Kaduna Internal Revenue Board. El-Rufai is cowardly to directly confront Sen Sani and resort to using Buhari’s name to fight his domestic battles.”

The statement explained that Senator Sani remains, “one hundred percent a supporter” of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

According to Sanni, “Senator Shehu Sani is one hundred percent a supporter of President Buhari, but he is neither a sycophant nor hypocrite who will not speak his mind when there is the need to do so.”

News Express reports that APC yesterday condemned Senator Sani and accused him of anti-party conduct, for criticising the new pricing and supply framework for petrol introduced by the federal government last week, and threatened to punish him by sending him away from the APC fold.
