The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso to be mindful of his statements after he described the party as ‘dead.’

The PDP also expressed shock at the hateful comments Kwankwaso made against the party which he had benefitted largely from.

This was contained in a statement released on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

“Senator Kwankwaso went too far in declaring the party dead just because he is aggrieved that the Senate Presidency did not go his way.”

"Where was Senator Kwankwaso when a party he claimed was dead defeated his choice candidate in the Senate? Was it a dead party that was able to do what according to Kwankwaso, no other party could do in the 16 years of PDP control of the National Assembly?”

“Indeed, we found it very baffling that such unguarded statement came from a person who contested for the high office of the president of Nigeria. Statements from such personalities should be decorous, statesmanly and focused on the national interest instead of promoting acrimony and division in the polity. This unfortunate outburst is well below Senator Kwankwaso’s character and status and we urge him to desist from such.”

The former governor is now the Senator representing the Kano Central Senatorial District.
