Senator Sani Mohammed, a senator representing Niger South in the red chamber, has resigned from the APC barely 48 hours after Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani dumped the APC.

Senator Sani Mohammed who blamed his resignation on an alleged injustice, is reportedly  angered by the decision of the ruling party to drop his name from the list of candidates for the 2019 general election.

Though he did reveal the party he would be moving to, however there are speculations that he would join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Though the primary elections in Niger State ended in controversy, it was however gathered that the three Niger senators — namely Mohammed, David Umar and senate spokesman, Aliyu Abdullahi — had been cleared in the list dated October 4, 2018 and signed by Adams Oshiomhole, the party’s national chairman.

However, Mohammed was replaced with Muhammad Bima Enagi while the two others were cleared.
