- A group in Kaduna has accused Senator Shehu Sani of anti-party activities
- The group , Concerned Indigenes of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, said the senator has joined President Buhari's enemies
- It vowed to work to recall him as the APC has failed to take appropriate action
A group, Concerned Indigenes of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, has vowed to work towards recalling Senator Shehu Sani accusing him of working for the opposition party.
Leadership reports that the group made this known on Monday, February 12, saying the senator has not done anything for the people he represents in three years that he has been at the National Assembly.
Aliyu Saidu who is the leader of the group claimed he worked towards the election of Sani in 2015 but said he deserves to be recalled for his alleged anti-party activities.
He claimed the senator has joined forces with enemies of the All Progressives Congress and President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said they would spearhead Sani’s recall since the party has failed to take appropriate action.
Saidu said: "I will like to begin this address by drawing your attention to the fact that I was at the heart of Senator Shehu Sani’s campaign machinery in the capacity as Deputy Director General of his campaign team.
“Instead of investing his legislative resources and privileges towards deepening our legislative culture and uplifting the conditions of his constituents, he becomes the foster boy of President Buhari’s enemies, always amplifying the challenges we are facing while ignoring the many progress the Buhari-led administration is making in order to portray the government as incompetent and clueless.
“No individual, no matter how highly positioned is above the party. We therefore call on the party to initiate disciplinary action against the senator because allowing thus madness to go unpunished will only embolden other rebels.
“We the people of Kaduna Central are saying enough is enough. Senator Shehu Sani’s three years in the Senate have been nothing but betrayal and a crime against our people.
“This recall process will proceed apace. There is no quitting, no giving up and surrendering until we restore our Kaduna Central, the kind of representation it deserves."
Asked if their move would not jeopardise the peace move of President Buhari, the group leader said: "We cannot wait for any committee of reconciliation because time is moving and by the time the report is ready, election would have been around the corner."
Senator Sani in his reaction through his senior special adviser on politics and ideology, Alhaji Suleiman Ahmed, said he would not stop speaking against policies that were anti-people.
He said: “It is regrettable that the government feel they should be using jobless youths, (that we are fighting for to make their lives better), in attacking the senator.
“The issue of recall is nothing new. We are not deterred by the threat at all because its being the usual trend. We will continue to challenge any anti-people policy both in the state and the country. The senator would not dance to the tune of the party simply because he is from the same party with the governor or the president.”
Meanwhile, Sani reacted to the fresh attack that left four people dead at Bakin Kogi village in Jemaa local government area of the state.
It was learnt that four people were killed and one wounded in an ambush by herdsmen in Bakin Kogi village of Jemaa local government of Kaduna state.
Sani, in a series of tweets sympathised with the victims and people of Bakin Kogi over the attack and assured that the government will not give up on what he described as," cowardly act of criminality".
