In a press Statement signed by PDP National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh, PDP congratulated the new Emir of Kano, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi on his inauguration, saying the Party will not play politics with the revered traditional institution.
Furthermore, the statement noted that the party has "an unflinching reverence" for the traditional institution and in that regard extends the same reverence it had for the late Emir to Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. The statement further admonished the new emir to remain be non-partisan which is expected of his exalted position.
“The PDP holds the office of the Emir of Kano in very high esteem. We therefore give the new Emir our prayers and urge him to ensure that the sanctity of the throne and the traditional institution are absolutely guarded and preserved.
“We are very much aware that his status has changed and we pray the Almighty Allah, who alone confers authority, to grant him the wisdom and good health to lead his people to peace and prosperity,” the ruling party wrote it its congratulatory statement.
The Party urged the Emir to foster a peaceful coexistence of all despite their political leanings.
