Sokoto APC faults Senator on alleged Sultanate partisanship

| March 26, 2014

From TUNDE OMOLEHIN, Sokoto
Sokoto State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the Senator representing Sokoto Central, Ahmad Maccido, to desist from portraying the Sultanate as partisan.
The Sultanate consists of the ruling clan and the traditional hierarchy of the late Jihadist, Usmanu Danfidiyo, currently headed by the Sultan of Sokoto.
In a statement signed by its state interim Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Sidi Aliyu Lamido, the party said the Senator made some reckless statements in an interview he granted journalists recently where he allegedly created the impression of partisanship by the Sultanate.
In the interview, Senator Maccido, a member of Sultanate clan was said to have claimed that the senatorial seat he occupied was the prerogative of the Sultanate and that his stay in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was sanctioned by the Sultanate.
The party however described the senator’s statement  as vain and incendiary talks.
“The caliphate had always been in the vanguard for the promotion of moral and ethical values of justice, equity in leadership and had shunned and resisted triviality, oppression, cowardice and flippancy of office throughout history. We  advise him to emulate the great and endearing qualities of the past and present leaders of the caliphate by being truthful and courageous.”
“The Sokoto people, like all democratic societies, attach a lot of premium on the performance of political office holders in their choice of candidates at the polls and will not be hoodwinked by the cowardly antics of  politicians and the PDP,” the APC stated.
It advised Maccido to  deploy his energy to his demanding legislative duties to enable him effectively represent his constituency.
