Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central has disclosed how his exit from the All Progressives Congress (APC) was delayed by President Muhammadu Buhari and a leader of the party, Bola Tinubu.
Mr Sani who left APC to join People’s Redemption Party (PRP) during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics said he was delayed by the duo on the assurance that issues prompting his exit would be addressed.
“They gave me assurance that the issues prompting me to leave the party will be addressed,” he said. “There were discussions and promises whereby those of us who have raised issues of a problem with governors of our states will be addressed.”
“For you to emerge as a candidate in the APC, you must have somebody in the seat of power. Secondly, if you are in the favoured book of the Governor.”
He further said he never demanded automatic ticket from the party.
“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.”
