Senator Shehu Sani
The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, has said that those in the All Progressives Congress, APC, who still subscribe to dirty politics are at the wrong place.

Sani said that he and others have submitted their application for a direct primaries to the National leadership of the party against the decision of the state’s executive to conduct indirect primaries.

He said it was the impunity and dirty politics of endorsement, exclusion and threat in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that brought the APC into existence.

The lawmaker, who is seeking a return the Senate, spoke with reporters on Saturday after he picked his expression of interest and nomination forms in Abuja.

He said; “If you belong to the APC and not the PDP that they condemned and criticized over the years and you still subscribe to the dirty politics of endorsement, exclusion and threats, such kind of person is in the wrong place.
“APC came into existence as a result of the vices, negatives and the destruction that had attended our political experience.
“Direct primaries is not simply about logistics. It is about honour and integrity as well as changing the political order of the country.

“Those who subscribe to direct primaries have offered themselves for trial and judgment by the people who elected them into offices and they are saying that there is honour, principle and ideal in politics.

“As far as we are concerned, we stand for direct primaries. The state chapter has submitted its application for indirect primaries and we the stakeholders and aspirants have submitted our application for direct primaries. It is left for the national leadership of the party to decide.”
