The chairman of the Kano state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alh. Shehu Wada Sagagi has distanced himself and the State Executive Council of the party from the just concluded presentation of flags to the party candidates in the state.

Sagagi stated this in a statement he personally signed and shared with journalists in Kano on Sunday, the chairman described the event as ‘a jamboree’ aimed at misguiding the members of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Shehu Sagagi further said all matters related to PDP Candidates would be treated after the court judgment that is expected tomorrow Monday 19th December 2022.

“At the moment, we cannot give Flags to any of the two governorship candidates because they are in court waiting for judgment, as law abiding citizens, we must wait for outcome of the court judgement which is coming up tomorrow before making any commitment to anyone concerning the issue at stake”.

“I wish to confirm to all and sundry, that we shall announce a date and time for official presentation of the party’s flag for all candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in due course after the court’s judgment Insha Allah and we will do the needful within the confines of the law,” the statement added.

While calling for all members and supporters of the PDP to remain calm and law abiding, he also assured the PDP family in Kano that the said presentation of flags conducted yesterday was done without the consent of the State Executive Council of the party and the general public should disregard the event as it is nothing but a show of shame and disrespect to the rule of law so as to create division and reduce chances of the party in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
