The Deputy Governor of Sokoto State, Manir Muhammad Dan’iya, has debunked reports that he resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a viral letter circulating online on Thursday, Dan’iya allegedly wrote to his ward Chairperson that he has resigned from the PDP.
The Deputy Governor, in a swift response through a statement issued by his Director of Press, Aminu Abdullahi Abubakar, dissociated himself from any letter announcing his resignation from the PDP.
“Our attention has been drawn to a letter purportedly issued in Sokoto that the Sokoto State Deputy Governor, Hon. Manir Dan’iya had resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“This is untrue and a blatant lie. Hon. Manir Dan’iya is still a bonafide member of the PDP, to which he reaffirmed his unwavering loyalty and support.
“He is hereby dissociating himself from any such letter stating that he had left the PDP,” the statement read.
