PDP Frowns At Provocative Political Songs In Kano


The Kano State chapter of the PDP has frowned at “provocative political songs” being composed and circulated by some artistes in the state.

The Chairman of its publicity committee, Alhaji Gambo Danpass, told a news conference in Kano on Wednesday that the songs negated the religion and culture of the people of the state.

“We condemn in strong terms the playing of such songs which usually make mockery of both the PDP’s successful candidates and their defeated opponents.

“The promotion of these tunes is un-Islamic and runs contrary to our values as a people,” Danpass said.

He, therefore, warned that the incoming PDP government of Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso would take “urgent” steps to stop the trend immediately it assumed office.

“Dr. Kwankwaso, being a disciplined leader, elected on the platform of a disciplined party, the PDP, will definitely move against the circulation of these songs which cause disharmony among our people,” he said.

The PDP spokesman also hinted that the incoming government would sanitise the activities of film makers in the state.

“Some of the Hausa films being produced and marketed here also carry tunes which offend the socio-cultural and religious norms of our people.

“We will try to censor them to conform to the established ideals,” he said.

NAN reports that the PDP’s reaction was prompted by some songs which dramatise the substantial defeat of the ruling All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) in the last general elections in the state.
