Breaking News: PDP Withdraws Congratulatory Message To Late Emir’s Eldest Son, Releases Statement – Details!


The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples’ Democratic Party on behalf of the party has disclaimed an earlier congratulatory message to the newly selected Emir of Kano due to issues of authority within the party. A statement has been released to that effect few moments ago. The statement reads:

PDP Nigeria: Our attention has been drawn to a unauthorized statement issued on behalf of the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP by his Special Assistant, Mr. Richard Ihediwa, congratulating the eldest son of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji 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, Chief 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.


Chief Olisa Metuh

National Publicity Secretary.

More reactions soon.
