Kaduna: Senators Shehu Sani, Suleiman Hunkuyi Dump APC


In a move that did not shock political observers, Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District and his counterpart from Kaduna North Senatorial District, Suleiman Hunkuyi at the National Assembly, have left the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Tom Maiyashi, Chairman of the Akida faction and Ja’afaru Abas Ibrahim, legal adviser of the Restoration Group, announced the decision of the two groups at a joint press conference in Kaduna on Friday.

Senators Sani and Hunkuyi, who have been engaged in a long-running rivalry with Nasir el-Rufai, Governor of the state, belong to the ‘Akida’ and ‘Restoration Group’ factions of the party respectively.

“This joint press conference is the culmination of extensive reviews and consultations over the state of the All Progressives, Congress (APC) in Kaduna state as well as in the nation,” Maiyashi said.
