PDP Suspends Kano Rally Over Insecurity Issue
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rescheduled its planned rally, scheduled to hold in Gaya town, Kano State.
The party cited insecurity issues as the reason for the postpoment.
During the suspended rally, the party had planned to receive the governorship candidate of the Democratic Peoples Movement in the 2015 governorship election, Bashir Ishaq, and his supporters into the PDP fold.
Chairman of the party in the state, Mas’ud Doguwa,, said the party postponed the rally until further notice, following several phone calls, which the leadership of the PDP received from concerned stakeholders.
He said, “We received numerous calls urging us to respect the advice of the Commissioner of Police in the state, Rabiu Yusuf, who had earlier told us to shelve the event citing security challenges.
“PDP is a law abiding party, it has no record of misunderstanding with security agencies. So, we want to remain law-abiding.”
