Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Yusuf A. Dingyadi in Kaduna on Sunday cautioned on leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to stop peddling what he called lies and propaganda.
Yusuf, who addressed newsmen while in Kaduna said, the people of Sokoto have decided to vote the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate in the 2019 governorship election despite the earlier suspension by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), urging the opposition APC to go and start preparing for 2023 instead of fanning ember of disunity among the people of the state especially through social media.
According to him, the state government will soon begin to take some of them to court or else they desist saying, Sokoto as a peaceful state could not allow propagandists toil with its peaceful co-existence established over the years because some people thought they could hid under federal might to misrepresent electorate.
He said, ‘’I want to use this medium to call on the leadership of the APC in Sokoto state to stop unleashing terror, to stop propagating lies and propaganda. They know they failed. Those people in Abuja also knew that those they sent have failed. Why can’t they stop all these lies and start preparing for 2023?
“They should desist from sending their foot soldiers to be writing nonsense on social media. That is bad because they are downgrading people of Sokoto State. They should stop posing people of Sokoto as if we don’t know anything. We are peace loving people and nobody can take that away from us.
“So they cannot come and be creating confusion, creating lies in order to achieve their selfish aim to justify their promise to their Abuja boys. They want Mr President and their party leaders to know that they are working to justify the money they may have collected. But people of Sokoto have decided to vote PDP and its governorship candidate in this year’s election.
“Additionally, Governor Tambuwal has been able to tolerate their bashing and insults, that has encourage them to go for the high level of propaganda and mischief against his personality and his office as the governor.
“They are boasting that what they lost at the election will be redeemed at election petition tribunal because of their connection in Abuja at the expense of the electorate in the state. Such childish idea and lies are nothing but the creation of discarded politicians who have become merchant of lies and deceit in Sokoto State.
“And let me quickly say this, we will soon sue some of them for writing against the peace and political conscience in Sokoto State. We are ready for anybody that want to create a problem in our dear state. They have already filed a case in tribunal, so, they should wait and allow the tribunal decide their case and stop pre-empt the tribunal.
