He said the National body of APC has already invalidated his suspension from the party, as he advised the two parties to avoid any form of attack and counter attack against each other.
“I have instructed all my supporters and followers to abide by this, but unfortunately, some people are capitalizing on the crisis for their own monetary gains.
“I am saying it in clear terms that as far as I am concerned we would abide by what the national body says,” he said.
On the transistor radio distributed Senator Shehu said the gesture was to raise political awareness among the people.
He also said the radio would give the people more access to information on what is happening within and outside their localities.
