Buharists have become orphans in APC – Shehu Sani


Former senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central, has recently taken a dig at the loyalists of former Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, suggesting that they have been left in the cold. This comes in the wake of the resignation of Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who cited a “gang up” against him by some close associates of President Bola Tinubu.

In a tweet posted on his official Twitter handle, Mr. Sani hinted that Mr. Tinubu was orchestrating a purge of the party to weed out the loyalists of the former president. The implications of this statement have sparked discussions and speculation within political circles, as it reflects the ongoing power struggles and shifting dynamics within the APC.

It’s important to note that Abdullahi Adamu, who was considered the preferred candidate of President Buhari, ascended to the position of chairman during the party’s convention in March 2022. However, ahead of the party’s primary election, the former governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Adamu, openly announced Ahmad Lawan, the former Senate President, as the preferred candidate of the APC.

This move led to a rift within the party, as the presidency and state governors elected under the APC platform swiftly disowned Mr. Adamu’s claim and declared their unwavering support for Mr. Tinubu. The division within the party became more apparent, culminating in the resignation of Abdullahi Adamu as the National Chairman.

The political landscape in Nigeria is always subject to shifts and realignments, and the recent developments within the APC underscore the complex nature of Nigerian politics. As the APC moves forward, the internal power dynamics, alliances, and rivalries will continue to shape the party’s trajectory and influence the broader political landscape of the country.

The resignation of Abdullahi Adamu and the subsequent commentary by Shehu Sani have added fuel to the ongoing debates and speculations surrounding the future direction of the APC. Political analysts and observers are closely watching to see how these events unfold and what impact they will have on the party’s internal dynamics and future electoral prospects.
