Senator Sani Warns APC Against Imposition, Implosion

The vocal Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to be wary of imposition, which, according to him, may result in implosion.
Sani also said that the APC Governors, who recently endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term did so because of their selfish interest.
Speaking in Osogbo, Osun State capital, on Friday at the second annual lecture of Rave FM, the Senator said the Governors were not sincere but were looking for a cover after they might have left office.
He stated that it was curious to note that the Governors and the party chieftains endorsing Buhari now did not do so when the President was on medical vacation in the United Kingdom.
He said:“The ruling party should know that what destroyed the PDP was a force from inside and not from outside. It was like a case of Yugoslavia in the old Soviet Union. Lack of internal democracy and imposition destroyed the PDP.
“The umbrella of the PDP was torn by the internal injustice. The ruling party should be careful. Many people who helped in bringing this administration on board are not being carried along. Now, Atiku has left the APC for the PDP. Those that contributed to this government before getting to power were not accorded courtesy.”
Sani said it had become important for all Nigerians to rally round the President and rescue him from the grip of the cabal in the government, who were bent on manipulating the situation to favour themselves at the detriment of the whole nation.
“It is left for Buhari to decide who loves him and who loves the throne.
“For Buhari to be rescued from the claws of the cabal, he needs the concerted efforts of all Nigerians, regardless of their religion, tribe and political parties.”
Sani said although Buhari had moved the country from the culture of corruption with impunity, Nigeria had yet to reach where it ought to be.
At the event, a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), said government should build strong institutions as a way of tackling corruption.
He said: “Let us build institutions economically. Once institutions are built, corruption will be substantially excised. We can’t fight corruption when everything in this country is so centralised.
“We can’t fight corruption in a system of autocracy because when we look at the constitution, all powers are built around the Federal Government. We can’t fight corruption successfully in a system whereby we have everything in the exclusive legislative list and not on the concurrent list.”
