Contrary to claims that Shehu Sani has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Kaduna State senator said he is still in the ruling party.
Following the crisis in the Kaduna APC, two of the factions of the party in the state, the Akida and Restoration groups, on Friday declared that they had dumped the party.
Sani, who is one of the leaders of Akida faction was presumed to have dumped the party along with his group.
However, in a statement later on Friday, which he made available to newsmen, and on his social media pages, Sani said that he was yet to dump the “Broomcity FC”.
The statement read, “I’m yet to defect or decamp or migrate from the APC to any other party. However,discussions and consultations are ongoing as regards to our future in the party.
“Decision will be taken in a matter of week or two whether to remain in the party of migrate. And when the time comes, I’ll make a formal announcement on the floor of the Senate and my Facebook and Twitter handle.”
On his social media pages he wrote, “Clarification; I’m yet to leave the Broomcity FC for the Umbrella united or any other club on the Premier league. Discussion and consultations are ongoing.
“If such will happen, it will be backed by a signed formal letter to the club management; and a formal announcement on the side of the pitch by myself.Thank you.”
Sani, an outspoken senator and a critic of his own party, has always hinted of dumping the APC but appears to have either grown cold feet on the decision or taking more time to make up his mind.
