Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central at the Senate has warned Ike Ekweremadu, deputy Senate President, against leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Mr Sani gave the advise while reacting to reports that Mr Ekweremadu was warming up to dump the opposition PDP and pitch his tent with the ruling APC.

While the top lawmaker who has been in the opposition party since 1998 debunked the report on Wednesday in a Facebook post, the Kaduna lawmaker’s warning comes Thursday evening.

Ekweremadu was said to be angry with the PDP because of the manner the party choosed its vice presidential candidate without considering or consulting him. He is reported to have lobbied to be running mate to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate.

Mr Abubakar who defeated 12 constants to clinch the ticket of the party picked former Anambra governor, Peter Obi, as his running mate.

Advising him not to move to the APC Sani said he should remain in the PDP or face the consequences if he dumps the opposition party for the ruling party.

“Bro Ike,stay where you are jeje,I just dey commot,If you no hear,you go see,” the Kaduna lawmaker said in a tweet.

Sani who has been in the APC from its inception was denied a return ticket of the party to the red chamber for the 2019 general election.

This was after the national leadership of the party prevented him from leaving the party when his colleagues at the upper legislative chamber did in July.

He recently resigned from the party when he realised he was oust from the race by his state governor, Nasir El-rufai.
