From JULIANA TAIWO-OBALONYE, Abuja
The chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debt, Senator Shehu Sani, (APC, Kaduna), has described his suspension by the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, as a ruse.
Sani who said he accompanied the Senate President, Bukola Saraki for the usual Jumat prayer at the Presidential Villa, stated that anybody uncomfortable with his comments should block his ears but that plans to suspend him from the party will continue to fail.
Senator Sani and Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, have been feuding politically, a development that has created a sharp division in the state chapter of the APC.
According to Sani who spoke to State House correspondents, “I cannot be suspended, I am unsuspendable, if there is any word like that. I remain a member of my party, If you simply feel uncomfortable with my words all you can do is to simply put some cotton on your ears so that it can block it and if you are not comfortable with seeing me physically, you simply need to use sunglasses but in every sense you can’t hide behind attempts to silence Shehu Sani. In fact I have been so suspended up to about 20 times that my car doesn’t need any suspenders right now, each time they call its about to suspend”.
Asked why his relationship with El Rufa’i is now strained, Sani said, “Well its a normal thing,you can be siamese twins and then you may engage in combat, you can also be twins and then engage yourselves in disagreement and you can also be from the same house or family or same room but still disagree with each other.
