The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Katsina Chapter has dismissed the rumor that its governorship candidate, Sen. Yakubu Lado Dan-marke has withdrawn from the race.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Chairman of the PDP campaign media committee, Alhaji Kabir Yusuf Yar'adua on Wednesday.
Yusuf said, “The campaign council has its own headed paper which it issues press releases on. Similarly, the PDP campaign council wishes to advise people of the state to disregard the fake press release.
“The fake press release was a clear desperation of the ruling party, APC, to discredit the PDP gubernatorial candidate who is by the day gaining popularity from the electorate,”
“I wish to state that the PDP gubernatorial candidate is very much in the race.
“Only this evening, he received hundreds of Labour Party loyalists who intend to support him, another indication that he is very much in the race,” he added.
The PDP campaign Council appealed to the people of Katsina state to disregard the fake and misleading press release by some mischievous elements of the opposition party.
