A member of the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, who resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) last Saturday may join another political party on Tuesday.

 Sani, representing Kaduna Central in the upper legislative chamber, gave an indication to this effect on his Facebook page sunday.

 The senator, who has been having a running battle with Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, wrote on his Facebook page: “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.” 

Sani, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Loans and Debts, may announce his defection to another party at the Senate plenary on Tuesday.

 He is also expected to write formally to the leadership of the Senate about his latest political move.

Sources told THISDAY that Sani may join the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) as he was said to have met at the weekend in Kaduna with officials of the party in the state.

 Sani had on Saturday announced his resignation from APC in a one-page letter he wrote to the party leadership in the state.
