“I had joined the APC and remained with it against all odds with the belief that it will constitute a veritable platform for the realisation of those democratic ideals which I hold very dear.
“(I had hoped) that honour and integrity will be the ultimate ethos of the party and, most importantly, that internal party democracy will always be the norm.
“However, only posterity can affirm the extent to which the APC has committed to and reflected these values.
“As I exit the APC at this point in time, I wish to formally thank the party for availing me the platform upon which I am currently serving this country in the honoured capacity of Senator of the Federal Republic.”
Meanwhile, Sani, on Sunday said he would still contest for the forthcoming 2019 election, though he had resigned from the APC which brought him to the Senate.
Sani disclosed his next political move on Facebook handle, while he commended his supporters and urged them to wait for 48 hours to be informed of his new party.
