In Kaduna State, Sani Shaaban, a former candidate for governor and founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has resigned from the party with immediate effect.
Shaaban, a former member of the House of Representatives and the President Muhammadu Buhari’s son-in-law, participated in the Kaduna State APC governorship primary on May 25, 2022, which Senator Uba Sani won.
Shaaban claims that the APC in Kaduna State has little to no concern for human life, social cohesion, and the rule of law. This is why he is leaving the party, according to his resignation letter, which he sent to the APC’s Hanwa ward chairman.
Speaking through the Director General of his Campaign Council, Ephraim James Shaaban, who is also an in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari, says he can no longer remain in member of the APC under the present state of affairs where the interest of the majority of common folks is little regarded.
According to him, the APC in Kaduna state has become more alienated from the masses, and rather than foster unity, social cohesion, and integration as envisaged by the founding fathers, the party has instead, brought hardship, division, and total disregard for human lives, communal and family values.
Shaaban, however, advised the party to do soul searching with a view to returning it back to the ideals for which it was formed by the progressive minds.
