PDP to Buhari: Visit Kano to “identify with the people”

Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria's president

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately wade in and arrest the situation of alleged mass death in Kano.

The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Sunday also demanded an immediate investigation into the circumstances leading to reported number of deaths in the state within the last one week.

Ologbondiyan said that the PDP’s call was predicated on conflicting reports emanating from Kano State on the cause of the sudden deaths, particularly at a time when the nation was battling with the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

He described the situation as  frightening, calling for presidential visit to the state to identity with the people.

“Our party holds that the situation in Kano demands an immediate presidential visit and investigation at the very high level.

“The development deserves an utmost presidential attention,” he said.
