Finally, Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central, has withdrawn his membership of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
His withdrawal of membership was announced in a letter to the chairman of the APC in his Ward 6, Tudun Wada North, Kaduna.
It is believed that Shehu Sani’s decision had to do with the eventual emergence of Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s favourite senatorial aspirant, Uba Sani.
It would be recalled that El-Rufai and Shehu Sani had been sworn enemies.

El-Rufai had worked against the candidacy of Shehu Sani, but the party had said he would be given automatic ticket.
The party’s position was later changed and El-Rufai’s candidate was at the end given the ticket.
Shehu Sani’s letter of resignation reads: “I present to you my highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer to you my resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“l had joined the APC and remained with it against all odds in the belief that it will constitute a veritable platform for the realization of those democratic ideals which I hold very dear, that honor and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the party and, most importantly, that internal party democracy will always be the norm. However, only posterity can affirm the extent to which the APC has committed to and reflected these values.
“As I exit the APC at this point in time, I wish to formally thank the party for availing me the platform upon which I am currently serving this country in the honoured capacity of Senator of the Federal Republic.
“I wish the party well in all her future endeavours and ask sir, that you please accept the assurance of my highest considerations.”
