Kaduna (Nigeria) — Senator Representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly Senator Shehu Sani has vowed to take legal action against his Party the All Progressive Congress in the state over false allegations against him.
The party leadership Tuesday threatened to sack the senator for refusing to honour their invitation.
According to the party, the senator need to clear his name from the allegations leveled against him for anti-party activities.
Represented at a news briefing in Kaduna, northwest Nigeria, by his Legislative Aide, Rabiu Khaleed, the senator described the allegations as baseless.
He described the group who claimed to be party leaders as a purported kangaroo group, sponsored by Kaduna state government to tarnish his name.
“This is our stand. We will not honour an invitation by a Kangaroo executives in the state. APC executives are not in existance in the state. We are therefore urging them to withdraw the letter sent to us within a week, or we will take legal action against them.
“Senator Shehu Sani will not honour their invitation, because he didn’t recognized them as state executives of the party. They are only claiming to be APC members, but we know they are only doing a bid for the state governor.
“Since our election, no party executive in the state deemed it fit to write to Senator Sani to inform him of any party, activities despite being a party stakeholder. Therefore, he will not honour any invitation from anybody because there are no recognised party leaders in the state,” he said.
The Senator also stated that Kaduna APC is in disarray, because it has since lost its footing and courage.
