Nigeria News – To Emerge As Candidate In APC, Senator Shehu Sani Reveals The Secrets
The senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has revealed that Bola Tinubu, a National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari delayed his exit from the ruling party.
Despite having the backing of the National Working Committee (NWC), he left APC after he lost the party’s senatorial ticket to Uba Sani, the El-Rufai’s candidate.
Shehu, who recently joined the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), denied demanding automatic ticket from the APC. The lawmaker said this while speaking on Sunday Politics, a Channels Television programme.
“There was no time I demanded that I should be given an automatic ticket. Last July, there was an uprising in the national party whereby legislators decided to decamp and I was part of the team but I was held back through the intervention of Bola Tinubu and President Buhari.
“They gave me the assurance that the issues prompting me to leave the party will be addressed.
“There were discussions and promises whereby those of us who have raised issues of problems with governors of our state will be addressed.
“For you to emerge as a candidate in the APC, first of all, you have to have somebody close to the seat of power, secondly if you are in the favoured book of the governor,” Shehu explained.
