APC Accuses PDP Of Inciting Violence In Kano



Ayo Balogun, Lagos

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of inciting the violence that followed the announcement of a new Emir of Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, on Sunday, in an apparent attempt to destabilize the state, and urged the Kano State Attorney-General to prosecute all PDP officials involved in this act of destabilization.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Monday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the statement issued by PDP’s Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh congratulating one of the contenders long before the Kano State Government announced the new Emir was premeditated and calibrated to incite violence.

It wondered why a ruling party, which has access to Kano or any state government, would rush to the media to congratulate a contender who had not been selected, without even contacting the selecting authority to ensure the veracity of whatever news it may have heard.

”What is so urgent about congratulating the new Emir that could not have waited for a few hours for the appropriate authority to make an official announcement?” APC queried.

The party said when the announcement was eventually made and the contender who had already been congratulated lost out, it is only natural that his supporters would feel shortchanged.

”It is therefore obvious that the PDP, through its National Publicity Secretary went out of their way to stoke the fire of violence in Kano.

”Since we live in a country which is being governed by the rule of law, the best option open to the  Kano state government is  for the State Attorney-General to immediately initiate criminal proceedings against PDP and its officials for incitement. Whatever explanations they have for their irresponsible and premeditated actions they should  reserve for their defence in court ,” APC said.
