Honourable Sani Mamood Sha’aban, an in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari, has resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) deepening worries of a fresh crisis rocking the Kaduna State chapter of the party.
His resignation follows the controversy, which trailed the governorship primaries of the ruling party in Kaduna.
It would be recalled that Sha’aban who is married to Buhari’s daughter, Hanan lost the party’s ticket to Senator Uba Sani and went on to challenge Sani’s victory in court.
But two weeks ago, the court threw away the case, saying it lacked jurisdiction to entertain it.
At a news briefing on Monday, a letter that Sha’aban personally signed was read by his Campaign Director, Barrister Joshua Danladi Ephraim.
Sha’ban said activities of the party made him to reconsider his membership, alleging that rather than bringing dividends of democracy closer to the masses, “some few elements in Kaduna APC have hijacked the party structure”.
“I believe I have in all conscience before God, done my possible best to stave off the inevitable but to no avail. I have come to a firm conclusion and resolved that in all good conscience. I cannot remain a member of the APC under the present State of Affairs.
“Where the interest of the majority of common folks is little regarded. I cannot remain in a Party that has little or no regard for human lives, social integration, peace and traditional values
“I Sani Mamood Sha’aban has officially and formerly resigned my membership of the APC at all levels today 28 November 2022,” he said.
Sha’aban said he is now in consultation for his next line of action, saying very soon he will announce the party he would join putting the crisis in the party headed by President Buhari, his in-law in more focus.
He said he would continue to challenge the APC Governorship candidate in court despite his resignation from the party.
