Kaduna guber aspirant, Sani Sha’aban, quits APC


A gubernatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 general elections, Hon. Sani Mahmoud Sha’aban,  has resigned from the party citing dissatisfaction with the conduct of the APC guber primaries in the state.

Addressing the media on his exit from the ruling party on Monday, Hon. Sha’aban, whose suit against the APC Kaduna state gubernatorial primary election that produced Sen. Uba Sani was dismissed by the Federal High Court for lack of jurisdiction, said he has filed notice of appeal and they are expected at the Appeal Court on Wednesday.

Sha’aban, represented by the Director General of his campaign organisation, Barr. Joshua Danladi Ephraim, said he would begin to consult those who love him before deciding where next to go and or what to do next after his resignation. 

The resignation letter addressed to the APC Chairman Hanwa Ward, Sabon Gari local government of Kaduna state and titled letter of resignation from the APC read in parts, “effective immediately, I officially and formally resign my membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at all levels. My entire political career has been devoted to the progressives opposition ideology, which seeks to provide good governance at all levels to the citizenry of Nigeria. I was a founding member of the All People’s Party (APP) at the advent of the fourth republic in Nigeria. 

“I was one of four persons who brought to and built up the APP in Kaduna state from inception. APP later metamorphosed into the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP). We left the ANPP together with President Muhammadu Buhari to form the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC). We were the bulk of the CPC component that teamed up with other political parties to form the All Progressives Congress. I was thus one of the founding members of the All Progressives Congress in the nation and in Kaduna state. 

“I worked assiduously for the success of the APC in Kaduna state and in Nigeria which God willing culminated on the APC being the ruling party nationally and in Kaduna state. We formed the APC and gave it our best in terms of resources, experience, network and wherewithal because we saw the party as the vehicle through which we progressively will propel Nigeria and Kaduna state in particular towards the ideas of social justice, economic prosperity, peace and social integration.

“Recent activities and events within the APC in Kaduna state in particular have compelled me to reconsider my membership of the APC. Despite all our best efforts, admonitions and best intentions, it is disheartening to note that the APC has become more alienated from the masses, and rather than foster peace, social cohesion and integration in Kaduna state as we envisaged and worked for, the APC in Kaduna state is now seen as synonymous with hardship, division abd with total disregard for human lives, communal and family values.

“Some few elements in the APC on Kaduna state have hijacked the part structure and turned it into their personal estate to serve their personal greed and avarice for the benefit of their families, friends and cronies. I advice the party to do some honest soul searching with a view to returning back to the ideals for which we formed the party.”
