The All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to the resignation of one of its senators, Shehu Sani, from the party.
Senator Sani had announced his resignation in a letter addressed to his ward chairman in Kaduna state on Saturday over prolonged crisis in the state chapter of the ruling party.
According to his letter:
“I present to you my highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer you my resignation from the APC.
“I had joined the APC and remained with it against all odds in the belief that it will constitute a veritable platform for the realisation of those democratic ideals which I hold very dear.
“I joined in the belief that honour and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the party and most importantly, that internal democracy will always be the norm.”
Speaking on the development, APC in a terse statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said it was studying and relating all the facts before taking an appropriate action.
The statement read:
“We received the news of the alleged defection of Senator Shehu Sani through media reports.
“The party leadership will relate with all the facts concerning the reported defection and react appropriately in due course.”
