The State Youth Leader of the Kwara Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Haliru Dantsoho Mahmud, Muhammed Jiya Patigi and other members of the opposition party in the state have issued public apology to the Senator representing Kwara North senatorial district, Senator Sadiq Suleiman Umar over sharing of a doctored video to misinform the public over the lawmaker public address during the All Progressives Congress stakeholders engagement a few weeks ago in Bode-Saadu, Moro LGA.
The defendants have admitted to mischievously re-broadcasting of falsehoods to suit their political gimmicks to deliberately misinform the public and heat up the polity in the state.
According to a letter of apology and retraction by one of the defendants said; “I Prince Haliru Dantsoho Mahmud (Dan’iyan Kaiama) wish to duly apologize to you for the injury caused to your person and office in respect of my re-broadcasting of a story against you in a Whatsapp group on your comment on “Kwara North is due for Governor in 2023 Senator Sadiq Umar.
“I sincerely apologize for whatever harm this might have caused you and your personality as I mean no harm, I did not mean to deliberately misrepresent or demean your person and your personality in this regard.” he added.
The Senator had however made it abundantly clear to everyone to desist from politics of deceit, misinformation, manipulation and propaganda against him or the APC government in the state, because to him he is only interested in politics of development and progress which he is doing transparently and with all the commitment required.
The next person engaged in any mischievous propaganda will not be so lucky with a mere apology.
It is no longer news that the lawmaker has made public declaration toward the reelection bid of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, who he described as a leader that is doing his best to govern the state and deliver good governance to the people of Kwara State.
