The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has made it clear that he is not President Muhammadu Buhari’s sycophant even as he took a swipe on the Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that threatened to expel him from the party for criticizing the new price of fuel introduced by the Federal Government.
He accused Governor Nasir El-Rufai of engineering the sack threat, and declared that he is in no way intimidated by the threat.
Senator Sani, who has been having a running battle with the governor over what he termed anti people policies, said he remained a 100 percent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, but that he is neither a sycophant nor a hypocrite who will not speak his mind when there is the need to do so.
Reacting to the threat through his Special Adviser on Politics and Ideology, Suleiman Ahmed, the senator described the threat as mere hallucination, dismissing the state APC as a tool in hand of the governor.
“It will be interesting for the general public to know that even the so-called state headquarters of the APC is a building owned by a top PDP chieftain in the state.
“The press conference and threat of expulsion made by one Tanko Wusono of Kaduna APC against comrade Senator Shehu Sani for objecting to the increase in pump price of petroleum products stands unambiguously condemned. Kaduna APC as it exists today is simply an extension of El-Rufai’s government.” [myad]
