“The office of Senator Shehu Sani has not, and will not send anybody as its representative or agent to that illegality that some desperate people are organising.

“This is because the national leadership of the APC has not scheduled any senatorial primaries in Kaduna central today.

“Consequently, anybody that goes there does so at his or her own freewill and does not in anyway represent the interest of Sen. Shehu Sani.

“The senator and his team are law abiding citizens and loyal party members who will always obey the directives of the National leadership of our great party,” Sani said.

Meanwhile, more than 3, 200 delegates are taking part in the senatorial primaries taking place at the Umaru Musa Yaradua Multipurpose Sports Hall, Kaduna.

Four aspirants are in the race for the party’s ticket to represent the Kaduna central senatorial zone.

They are: Malam Uba Sani, Special Adviser on Political and Intergovernmental Affairs to Governor Nasiru El-Rufai; Sani Saleh who lost the seat to Shehu Sani in 2015 general elections; Usman Ibrahim, a businessman, and Shamsideen Shehu Giwa.

It was learnt that Prof Edie Floyd-Igbo, the APC’s coordinator for the national and state Assembly primaries in Kaduna central senatorial zone, told NAN that 37 delegates selected from each ward across the seven local government areas that make up the district were voting in the exercise.


Floyd-Igbo said there were also five or three statutory delegates from each of the wards in the seven local government areas that make up the central senatorial district.
