Senator Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna central senatorial district, has been suspended indefinitely from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sani, who doubles as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts, had his suspension announced in a letter addressed to him, a copy of which was made available to reporters in Kaduna on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.
The letter was signed by the Secretary of the APC in his Ward 6, Tudun Wada ward, Kaduna, Mallam Awal Abdulhamid Garba.
The letter read, “As you are aware, your suspension from the party for a period of eleven months elapsed today, being November 29, 2016.
“The suspension which was in line with the constitution of our great party, was to enable you to defend yourself against illegalities committed by you against the party as well as breach of its constitution.
“We expected the period of your suspension to give you the grace of being remorseful, but you rather choose to play otherwise, and this made our party to be vulnerable to disunity, disharmony and further shattering the existing peace mechanism within our ward and the state at large.
“Therefore, in consideration of the constitutional provisions as contained in Article 21 (A) i, ii, iii, v, vi, and vii of the constitution of the APC, you are hereby suspended indefinitely from active participation of APC activities.
“This is in conformity with article 21 (D) i-(F) which provides punishment for any erring member of the party.
“With this letter, you are hereby warned to abide by the party’s decision.”
