Sola Ojo, Kaduna
The Senator representing Kaduna Senatorial District in the red chamber of National Assembly has resigned his membership of governing All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was coming at the height of three-year face-off between the lawmaker and his state’s Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, over policies, especially, the alleged role of the senator on the failed $350 million loan.
But the federal lawmaker, as at Saturday, when the news of his resignation letter to APC at Tudun Wada ward filtered into the air, had not make public the new political party he would be moving to with his loyalists.
Speaking with Sunday Sun via a telephone call, Special Assistant to Shehu Sani on Media, Abdulsamad Chimma-Amadi, confirmed the resignation of his principal from the APC.
“Yes, that is the story for now. The Senator has resigned from APC today but he has not move to any political party as I am speaking with you.

“So, if there is any update, I will get across to you.”
The copy of his resignation letter read in part, “I present to you my highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer to you my resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“I have joined the APC and remained with it against all odds in the belief that it will consider a veritable platform for the realisation of those democratic ideas which I hold very dear, that honour and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the party and, most importantly, that internal party democracy will always be the norm.
“However, only posterity can affirm the extent to which the APC has committed to and reflected these values.
“As I exit the APC at this time, I wish to formally thank the party for availing me the platform upon which I am currently serving this country in the honoured capacity of Senator of the Federal Republic.”
