Suspension Or No Suspension, Shehu Sani Will Continue To Criticize El-Rufai- Aide

Malam Suleiman Ahmed, the Special Assistant to Sen. Shehu Sani (APC- Kaduna), on Politics and Ideology in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) today in Kaduna while reacting to the alleged suspension of the senator by the Tudun Wada North, Ward 6 of APC made it clear that nothing will deter his principal from criticising the "anti-people" policies of the state government.

"This letter is not relevant; it has no value to us; this letter will energise him the more; it will strengthen his resolve to criticise the government of the state if it goes wrong.

"The senator will continuously criticise any (government) policy that is anti-people up to the end of (his tenure in) the Senate and beyond.

"So if you feel that the senator should not criticise the government of the day because he is part of the party that brought the current government to power, then when he comes out to re-contest in 2019, do not vote for him.

"He will criticise the government, whether or not he comes back as a senator in 2019.

"This is because Sani has been consistent in his criticism of anti-democratic processes and elements; he did not start his criticism (in the current) democratic (dispensation).

"He has been doing criticism anti-people policies right from the military era. That's what has taken caused his imprisonment on several occasions," Ahmed said.

He however noted that the senator would consider seeking legal redress if served with a genuine suspension letter in line with standard procedure.
