In a press statement issued yesterday by Alhaji Yusuf Dingyadi, the number one citizen in Sokoto State disclosed that there is a plot to cause political unrest in the peaceful state.

Tambuwal stated that his government can only be removed through a legal channel.
The press statement reads below
“Election is over, we have won the election and we have offered a hand of fellowship, we asked them to come so that we develop Sokoto State, they refused and went to court, why can’t they allow the court to pass its verdict?
“You can’t take your case to court and start making political noise and telling people lies when even the court has not started its own assignment.
“We are still in the process of pre-hearing, we didn’t even get to the time witnesses are called to testify on the election manipulation they alleged, yet they have started going round telling people lies, especially in the rural areas, they want to show that government is coming to them.”
The number one citizen advised the opposition party to be patient and allow the court of law do their constitutional work
He stated that “PDP in Sokoto is not looking for any backdoor judgement. You allow the court to do what is needful, we have confidence in court because we won election with divine intervention.”
Governor Tambuwal thereby urged all operatives the law enforcement agencies to desist what he described as political rascality in the state.
“We don’t want any political crisis, we don’t want any tension in Sokoto, Sokoto people are peace-loving, we call on security agents to investigate and find out the sponsors of the political rascality in the state,” He stated
