The Kaduna State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC ) on Thursday warned Senator Shehu Sani to desist from attacking President Muhammadu Buhari or face expulsion.
Sani who represents Kaduna Central senatorial zone in the senate was said to have been placed on 11 months’ suspension for alleged indiscipline, disloyalty and anti-party activities.
Addressing a news conference at the party’s secretariat in Kaduna, the acting Publicity Secretary, Salisu Tanko Wusono, said Sani’s attacks on Buhari began last year, adding that the party decided to teach him a lesson by suspending him in the hope that he will amend his ways.
“The APC Kaduna decided to teach Shehu Sani a lesson in party discipline in the hope that he will be reformed. He was placed on suspension, but rather than learn lessons, show remorse and work towards becoming a responsible senator, he has chosen to continue to show disloyalty to the APC and President Buhari.
“Given his disregard for the party, the APC Kaduna State has no option but to take further disciplinary measures that may lead to his expulsion,” Wusono said.
He added that the APC in Kaduna state was “dismayed and disappointed by the continued irresponsible conduct of Shehu Sani.
“In speech and conduct, he has shown himself incapable of loyalty to our party, the APC and our great leader, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Having ridden on the back of our party and the popularity of Buhari to get to the senate, Shehu Sani has since abandoned any pretension to discipline or loyalty to any principle.”
