President Muhammadu Buhari Inlaw, Sani Shaaban has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC. Shaaban, a former governorship aspirant and founding member of the APC, in Kaduna State dumped the party on Monday, saying his action is with immediate effect.
The former governorship aspirant is the father of Mohammed Turad Sani, husband to Buhari’s daughter, Hanan. The couple got married at a lavished wedding ceremony in September 2020.
Shaaban had lost the governorship ticket to Uba Sani who is now flying the APC flag in the 2023 governorship election in Kaduna state.
Apparently not happy with his loss and how he has been treated in the party, Shaaban said he left because the leadership of the party trampled on his rights, describing his former party as lawless and with no regard for human lives.
Speaking through the Director General of his Campaign Council, Ephraim James Shaaban, who is also an in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari, says he can no longer remain in member of the APC under the present state of affairs where the interest of the majority of common folks is little regarded.
According to him, the APC in Kaduna state has become more alienated from the masses, and rather than foster unity, social cohesion, and integration as envisaged by the founding fathers, the party has instead, brought hardship, division, and total disregard for human lives, communal and family values.
He advised the party to do soul searching with a view to returning it back to the ideals for which it was formed by the progressive minds.
Meanwhile, the magazine learnt that Shaaban is likely to defect to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in coming days.
