Chairman, APC Ward 6, in Kaduna South, Abbas Anni, has rejected senatorial endorsement of el-Rufai’s political adviser, Alhaji Uba Sani, describing it as a farce.
The APC Ward 6 chairman, in a statement signed by his PRO, Auwal Ibrahim Malami, stressed that exco wouldn’t have otherwise responded, if not for the fact that his endorsement was dubious and generated a lot of reaction across the country.
“The attention of Ward Six (6) APC Executives has been drawn to the recent political gimmick issued by some so-called APC Local Government Chairmen that they have ‘endorsed’ one Uba Sani as the party’s Senatorial candidate in Kaduna Central for 2019.
“Ordinarily, we would not have dignified these characters with a response. However, for the fact that the dubious endorsement has generated reactions across the country, it is imperative to denounce this political mess.
“We wish to categorically state here that the endorsement of that Uba Sani is a farce and should be completely disregarded by all and sundry. The APC has not in any way endorsed Uba Sani as the party Senatorial candidate in Kaduna Central and, as a matter of fact, we don’t even know him.
“As faithful followers of the party’s Constitution, we thought that if we are going to endorse anybody as a candidate, it must be known not only from the ward level but national level with constitutional and conniving reasons for doing that.
“This purported endorsement is clearly part of the desperation of these people and their paymasters to orchestrate confusion that would lead to the disrepute of the party. In this regard, we are passing a STRONG VOTE-OF-CONFIDENCE on the Senator Shehu Sani.
“We equally enjoin him to remain steadfast in his legislative activities and the good work he is rendering to Kaduna Central constituents.
“Finally, we are calling on the national leadership to issue a strong warning to his perpetrators and their accomplice not to ridicule our party, else the chances of the party is at risk.
