Arrogance Will Destroy APC ― Shehu Sani

Senator representing Kaduna central zone in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani has said the arrogance of the Presidency and certain chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) would undermine its fortunes in next year general elections.

He made the declaration while speaking with newsmen in Abuja. He expressed concern that the Presidency has since shut its doors against genuine party faithful who want the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to succeed. He further noted that only a sustained interface with Nigerians, across party divides, would enable the present administration to surmount the present enormous challenges the country is contending with.

He said: “Well, it is very clear that we should vote for people irrespective of their political affiliation, those who can deliver us out of Egypt and to the promised land. We should move away from that thinking that one political party can solve the problems of Nigeria. The challenge is the crisis and the problems we face as the nation today cannot be addressed without a national consensus and without a collective approach to our national problems.

In a situation where we think the president has a monopoly of wisdom and the solution to the problems, we are simply deceiving ourselves. President Muhammad alone cannot solve the problem of Nigeria, it is important for him to be honest and understand that it is also important for the APC to understand that. They must stretch the hands of friendship and cooperation to people irrespective of their political party affiliation and passion because the crisis in this country is so much in dimensional and it requires a national resolve and national unity in order to address it.”

The Chairman Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts said he was yet to dump the APC but admitted that he was “exploring options of getting out of the party.” According to the lawmaker, the presidency has closed its doors to those who genuinely want President Buhari to succeed. Sani also said that the only way for the government to overcome the challenges facing the country is no liaise with Nigerians.

According to Tribune, the Senator said “Well, it is very clear that we should vote for people irrespective of their political affiliation, those who can deliver us out of Egypt and to the promised land. We should move away from that thinking that one political party can solve the problems of Nigeria. The challenge is the crisis and the problems we face as the nation today cannot be addressed without a national consensus and without a collective approach to our national problems.

“I have not yet opted out of the APC but I can confirm we are talking with the PDP and we are talking with the APC and what is pushing us out of the APC is an inherent injustice, marginalisation and inequity that have visited us. We have been treated badly by the party in the last three years but we are appreciating that we have a chairman, in the person of Com. Adams Oshiomhole.

“We are also exploring options for getting out of the party, who remain in the party. So, the issue is still in the discussion. Our decisions will be in a matter of weeks and not in the matter of months where we are going to review whether we will remain in the party or we will go to cross the red sea out of Egypt to the promised land,” he added.
