A senator representing Kaduna central district, Senator Shehu Sani has said he will contest in the 2019 general election following his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to a yet to be disclosed party.
In a statement made available to the media, Senator Sani said he would be joining a new party having resigned from APC on Saturday.
Senator Sani made headlines after announcing his resignation from the party due to disagreements arising from the party’s senatorial primaries in Kaduna state where his name was dropped.
On Sunday, Sani revealed in a statement via his Facebook page that he will be announcing his new party in two days. The statement read;
“This is to thank all my supporters and friends for the show of solidarity and assurances of support over my decision to exit the APC.
“I assure you that in the next two days you will be informed of my new party. And be rest assured I will contest in the upcoming elections Insha Allah.”
