If Tinubu’s reconciliation fails, there will be mass defection from APC – Shehu Sani
Senator Shehu Sani said the APC restructuring plan is just a campaign for 2019 elections – He said the ruling party is not prepared to implement restructuring
– The APC lawmaker also said the ruling part will experience mass defection if Tinubu’s reconciliation committee fails Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, said the plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to implement restructuring is just a mere form of campaign for the forthcoming 2019 elections. In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the senator claimed that Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna state came up with the idea of restructuring just to gain political relevance. He said: “Governor El-Rufai is the chief architect of that committee because he wants political relevance. How can an APC that promised restructuring only think of restructuring when it is a year to an election? Document of that committee is more or less a campaign document for 2018. There will be no restructuring, you can quote me.”
Speaking about the crises in the ruling party, Sani said Tinubu should be given chance to reconcile the aggrieved party members, as instructed by President Muhammadu Buhari. He, however, said that the ruling party will express a mass defection if Tinubu’s reconciliation fails.
He said “…we need to put our ambitions in our pockets and allow the process of reconciliation to continue because reconciliation cannot go on with ambitions and bulldozers. Even, before you have peace in war situations, you must have a ceasefire. “For now, we are giving a grace of time for Tinubu to succeed. If he succeeds, the outcome of the deliberations will form the roadmap for the future of the party and if he fails, we will simply apply our senses. It is always good to look at the messenger and the message. “I can tell you that if Tinubu fails, there is going to be mass defection from APC.” P

Sani said El-Rufai demolished the building because he is angered by his suspension from the party.
