According to reports, some APC officials in the state has revealed that El Rufai offered them a N3m bribe to suspend Senator Sani.
Abbas Anni, the chairman of APC, Ward 6, spoke on behalf of his colleagues. He linked the new bribery allegation to a previous one last December.
“It is very unfortunate that this ugly move is propping up again after the disgraceful episode of a N500,000 bribe that was purportedly given by the same set of people to instigate the alleged suspension of Senator Shehu Sani about a year ago,”
Another official of the APC in the ward, Auwal Abdulhameed, who claims to be the ward's secretarry said Mr. Anni got a car from the senator while “the other eight (executive members opposed to Mr. Sani’s suspension) got motorcycles.”
“We have petitioned to the Commissioner of Police and we shall sue for defamation of character over these accusations that we received N3 million from SA on Political to Governor El-Rufai,” he added.
