From Laiatu Bamaiyi in Birnin Kebbi

Deputy Governor of Kebbi State, Senator Umar Tafida, has dismissed the claim by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, regarding the transmission of executive power when the governor travels outside the state. 

Addressing the press, the deputy governor emphasized that the allegations made by the opposition party concerning power transmission are baseless and unfounded, insinuating that the PDP is attempting to sow discord. 

Senator Tafida asserted that Kebbi State government remains united, dispelling notions of disunity within the administration. 

The deputy governor’s remarks was meant to reassure the public and emphasize the harmonious working relationship within the state government, debunking speculations of division or power-sharing discrepancies.

Tafida explained that the state government is united and there is no issue of power-sharing between the governor and himself, stressing that the governor always transmits power to him whenever he is out of the state, in line with the provisions of the constitution.

He also said that PDP’s claim that the governor has been running the state alone is not true, noting that he has been carrying all stakeholders along in the governance of the state.

Tafida urged the PDP to desist from spreading false information and focus on constructive criticism that will help government deliver on its promises to the people of Kebbi State.

The PDP did not respond to the deputy governor’s statement as at press time.
