The national Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has withdrawn its earlier statement where it congratulated one the sons of late Emir of Kano, Ado Abdullahi Bayero as the new Emir.
The latest statement from the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh read, “Our attention has been drawn to a unauthorized statement issued on behalf of the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP by his Special Assistant, Richard Ihediwa, congratulating the eldest son of the late Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Ado Bayero as the new Emir of Kano.
“Mr. Ihediwa relied on a false news flash on the AIT and issued a statement in that direction without approval from the National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
“This is completely embarrassing to the National Publicity Secretary and the entire leadership of the PDP.
“We hereby dissociate with the statement earlier issued and regret the embarrassment this may have caused the entire nation, the Kano Emirate and the good people of Kano state.”
