The party in 2015 suspended Sani for 11 months for committing offences which includes uttering statements that allegedly “violate the rules of engagement of the party, factionalizing the party, and engaging in anti-party activities by criticizing the policies of Governor Nasir El-Rufai.”
The party advised him to appear before its disciplinary committee but he reportedly failed to do so.
A letter signed by the secretary of the APC in ward 6, Tudun Wada and addressed to him yesterday November 29th, stated that the 11 months initial suspension had elapsed and that he will now proceed on indefinite suspension. The letter in part reads
“As you are aware, your suspension from the party for a period of eleven months elapsed today, being Tuesday 29th November, 2016. The suspension, which was in line with the constitution of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), was to enable you to defend yourself against illegalities committed by you against the party as well as breach of its constitution. We expected the period of your suspension to give you the grace of being remorseful, but you rather choose to play otherwise, and this made our party to be vulnerable to disunity, disharmony and further shattering the existing peace mechanism within our ward and the state at large. Therefore, in consideration of the constitutional provisions as contained in Article 21 (A) i, ii, iii, v, vi, and vii of the constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC), you are hereby suspended indefinitely from active participation of APC activities. This is in conformity with article 21 (D) i-(F) which provides punishment for any erring member of the party. With this letter, you are hereby warned to abide by the party’s decision.”
