Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District has accused Governor Nasir el-Rufa’I of desperation in his bid to oust him from the All Progressives Party (APC) by offering bribe to Ward 6 executives.
Speaking on behalf of the senator, some officials of APC Ward 6 Kaduna South Local Government accused an aide of the governor of offering N3 million bribe for them to suspend the senator.
Specifically, they accused Uba Sani, political adviser to the governor, of offering the bribe to some of their fellow executive members.
Chairman of APC, Ward 6, Abbas Anni, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues called on the anti-graft agency, EFCC, to investigate the bribery allegation.
The party official also linked the new allegation to a previous one in December last year when some of his fellow executives were accused of receiving N500,000 bribe to suspend Mr. Sani from the party.
“It is very unfortunate that this ugly move is propping up again after the disgraceful episode of a N500,000 bribe that was purportedly given by the same set of people to instigate the alleged suspension of Senator Shehu Sani about a year ago,” he said on Wednesday.
Mr. Anni called on the APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, and other leaders to intervene in the Kaduna crisis. He said they should act fast “before the Kaduna State Governor and his cronies destroy APC in Kaduna State.”
