The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani has insisted that he is still a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) but he, however confirmed that he is in talk with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Sani, who received an award as champion of advocacy at the just concluded lecture and award organised by the Blueprint Newspapers in Abuja on Tuesday debunked the rumour that he has left the party. While briefing newsmen in Abuja, he disclosed that though he is in talks with his party and other parties before taking any move.

Sen. Sani reiterated that he and some members of the party have suffered injustices, marginalisation and inequity from previous leadership of the party.

“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 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, he said.

The lawmaker commended the present Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee for its move to resolve all lingering issues, adding that he and some members are presently exploring ways to get out of the party.

He revealed that their decisions to leave the party will be made available in the next few days.

According to him, “we are also exploring options of getting out of the party, but who remains in the party, the issue is still on discussion.

“Our decisions will be in the 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.”
