Why APC Lost Zamfara To PDP – Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani, lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the Senate has opined why the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) lost the state.

The Supreme Court on Friday nullified the candidature of all APC candidates in the state, describing their votes as a wasted one.

The apex court also validated the position of the Court of Appeal which earlier held that no valid party primaries produced the candidates for the election held in the state.

Reacting to the new development, the Kaduna lawmaker said the ruling party lost the state because they did nothing to confront the security situation in the state.

The spirits of the innocents in their sepulchre,haunted and crumbled the Zamfara ruling elites political tower,” Mr Sani tweeted on Friday.

“The lessons;never make a Ladder from woods of a coffin,” the outspoken lawmaker added.

Criminal activities such as killings, kidnappings, banditry among others in Zamfara State recently worsened. This led to a protest where protesters described the outgoing governor, Abdulaziz Yari, as the most useless governor in the country.

Mr Yari, a senator-elect is expected to hand over power to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), believed to have come second in the governorship election.

The Supreme Court judgement also affected the state assembly election that produced lawmakers-elect of the APC.
