The former Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress will end when President Muhammadu Buhari completes his tenure in 2023.
The Human right activist stated that APC was not formed on the basis of ideology, hence it will end in 2023.
The former APC man stated this on Tuesday while receiving the executive members of the Peoples Redemption Party, on a courtesy call to his residence in Kaduna.
Shehu Sani stated that the future of Nigeria depends on a political party with credible leadership and a clear ideological direction.
Sani also stated that one of the major tasks before PRP remained the reformation of the party for “men of honour and integrity to take over relevant positions and win elections in 2023 in order to free Nigerians from deception, fraud, and misrepresentation of which the ruling APC is notorious.”
He pointed out that “APC begins with President Buhari and it will end with Buhari.”
“APC is not a party that is founded on ideology; it is a party that is found on resentment against PDP and it is also a party that is founded under the banner of President Buhari. It is unfortunate for all the promises and pledges of cleaning, reforming and reconfiguring this country; the ruling APC had failed.”

BREAKING: Supreme Court Affirms Ortom’s Election As Benue Gov
The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Samuel Ortom of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as Benue Governor.
A seven-man panel of the court, led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, dismissed the appeal by Emmanuel Jime, who contested as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, who read the lead judgment, held that the appellants (Jime and APC) failed to present any cogent reason to move the court to tamper with the concurrent decisions of the two lower courts, which both upheld Ortom’s election.
Another member of the panel, Justice Dattijo Mohammed, is reading the judgment in relation to the governorship dispute in Admawa State.
Buhari Reacts To Supreme Court Verdict On Kano, Plateau
President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to Supreme Court judgement on governorship tussles in Kano and Plateau states.
President Buhari said it would have been disastrous for the All Progressives Congress (APC) if the party had lost Kano and Plateau states at the Supreme Court.
The president stated this in his congratulatory message to the APC over the apex court judgement that upheld the elections of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Governor Simon Lalong.
Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said: “I am glad this tortuous journey has ended in favour of the party and our governors.
“APC won the states and has proved it in court. It would have been a major blow if strategically important states like Kano and Plateau are lost.
“It has now become standard procedure for the opposition to challenge any poll or judgement that does not return its candidates. Election is good when they win.
“The opposite is the case if someone else emerges. But that is not the way it works. Democracy is not only about who wins or who loses, but also about the process. In disparaging every unfavourable result or judgement, they disparage the entire
