Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has denied reports that he has left the All Progressive Congress (APC) party for SDP. He stated that if he has intentions to leave the party, he will make it public.
Sani said this on Facebook while debunking reports that he had defected to the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
He used football terms to pass across his message.
“I’m still in the Broomcity FC as a left winger and not a defender. The rumour that I’ve changed club to White Horse Athletico and that they offered me the position of a striker is untrue,” he wrote.
“If there will be any club transfer before the end of the season, you will be openly notified. Thank you.”
Sani has been embroiled in a battle with Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna over what the lawmakers described as high-handedness.
The Senator was invited by the Police last week over an alleged murder case set against him by the Kaduna State government.
In the letter addressed to Senator Shehu Sani, he was asked to appear on April 30 at the Command Headquarters in Kaduna for questioning. The letter which was signed by Austin Iwar, the police commissioner in the state and also forwarded to Senate President, Bukola Saraki, reads in parts;
“This is in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide transferred to this office by 1 Division, Nigerian Army, Kaduna, alongside with exhibit audio CD in which your name was mentioned by the principal suspect,” Iwar said in a letter to Sani, who represent Kaduna Central at the red chamber.
“This is to enable us fairly and timely conclude investigation into the matter, Mr Iwar said,” Iwar said in the letter addressed to Sani through the Clerk of the National Assembly.
Senator Shehu Sani has been an active critic of the current APC-led government.
