Senator Shehu Sani has reiterated the important leadership qualities of President Muhammadu Buhari towards the cause of the All Progressives Congress saying he remains the bedrock of the party.
He said this during an interview granted to Channels Television on the programme “Sunrise Daily”.
“APC cannot last beyond the political lifespan of President Muhammadu Buhari. Buhari remains the heart, soul and oxygen of the party. I don’t think after Buhari, there will be APC again in the sense that everything begins and ends with him,” Sani said.
Sani’s interview comes two weeks after his defection from the ruling party to the People’s Redemption Party (PRP).
The senator in his resignation letter to the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole on October 19, the senator expressed his gratitude to the party for giving him the platform to serve as a lawmaker.
Despite leaving APC, the Senator who represents Kaduna Central in the National Assembly said the party has disappointed its members and Nigerians more than three years into office.
“I believe that APC has in every possible way disappointed not only those who are its members, but it disappointed the country,” he said.
Although he became a Senator under APC’s platform, he, however, said he left the party because it has deviated from its campaign promises in 2015.
He added, “It (APC) was a party that came with a lot of promises and pledges, but it has not been able to dispense justice to its members.”
