Oshiomhole collected $2m to sell Shehu Sani’s Senatorial Ticket
The truth has been revealed on how National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) sold Kaduna Central Senatorial District ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for $2m to Uba Sani, the political adviser to Nasir el-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State.
According to the source, the Managing Director of the Nigeria Port Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman, singlehandedly gave the money to Farouk Adamu. He said Adamu collected the cash in Abuja on behalf of Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Farouk, who headed a presidential committee on the APC primaries, collected the money without the knowledge of other members. Members of the committee include Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu; Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
It was reported that, he ( Faruk ) ignored the report of the committee and took charge of making phone calls to senators to inform them who made the list and who did not.
Westerndailynews source revealed that the sum of N50million was offered to the Assistant Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, by Uba Sani, which he turned down. The source also noted that Nabena had issued several press statements that Shehu Sani remained the only candidate cleared for the zone, and Nabena had insisted he would only do what the National Working Committee (NWC) asked him to do, as he had no power to upturn their decision.
