KADUNA—The senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has said if Governor Nasir el-Rufai of the state, was for war, he and others in opposition to his government were ready for a bigger war.
He said this after meeting with the panel the All Progressives Congress, APC, set up to look into the crisis in the state.
The senator and el-Rufai have disagreed on a number of issues, with the faction Sani belongs recently suspending the governor, which culminated in the demolition of the building housing the faction.
Despite talking tough, Sani said he would, however, support any effort aimed at resolving the crisis.
He said: “If one person is ready and the other person is not ready, certainly we are not going to make any headway.
“So, I very much identify myself with any effort that is aimed at bringing peace. Our position is this, if the governor of Kaduna state is for peace, we are for peace. If he is for war, we are also for war and a bigger war.”
The senator appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the crisis that had engulfed the party in Kaduna State.
He said further: “President Buhari is the glue that binds. the members. I still see President Muhammadu Buhari as the glue of APC, if we don’t have Buhari in the APC, everyone will find his way to his home. So, as he remains the glue, he must also be up and doing in addressing these crises.”
