Mr. Maniru Dan’Iya,Deputy Governor Sokoto State, has advised that any form of harassment and bullying of the people from any quarter within the state will not be endured by the state government.
Mr. Maniru stated this while inaugurating the Sokoto State People’s Democratic Party(PDP) Main Contact and Mobilisation Committee at the Presidential Lodge, Sokoto.
Mr. Dan’Iya added that the people of Sokoto State were known to be peaceful, law-abiding and would remain so before, during and after the 2019 general elections.
The second in command said the Party in Sokoto State would not fold its arms and allow some people claiming Federal Government’s backing to continue to harass and intimidate its supporters just to create fear in them for political advantage.
The deputy governor said, “As we remain law-abiding citizens of the nation, any form of intimidation and harassment in the name of politics using elements in Federal Government agencies will be resisted as the Nigerian law enshrines.
“We call on all PDP supporters in Sokoto State to remain calm as all legal options are being pursued to see to the release of the PDP members that were unlawfully arrested and detained.”
The deputy governor also said that Governor Aminu Tambuwal, “as a leader who always advocates peaceful resolution of all matters under the law; rather than confrontation,” had asked the Party in Sokoto State to defend its members.
