A Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani reacted to receiving an automatic ticket to seek re-election in 2019 as a reward for loyalty in the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC).

Senator Sani who commented on this while speaking to newsmen shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, said he was not so keen about the automatic ticket which the party had pledged to reward loyalty.

He, however, emphasised that due process must be followed while rewarding party members for their loyalty.

“I think the party had made it very clear and known to each and every person that there will be a reward for loyalty but in every sense of the word due process of the party needs to be followed.


“And as far as we are concerned, what matters most to us is not simply about automatic ticket but about the peaceful and transparent conduct of the 2019 election and also the very need for us as a people and as a nation to know that the fate of the country is on our hands.

“There is the need for us to keep aside all sectional, ethnic and religious differences for the progress of this country and going by the very fact that the President has intervened and chairman of the party has intervened – all family squabbles would certainly come to an end,’’ he said.
