Presidential spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, has asked the people of Dumurkol, Daura and the entire Katsina state to vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from top to bottom in the 2023 general elections. 

The Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity) to the President enjoined the Katsina people to vote for APC from the presidential candidate to House of Assembly members saying “whoever come here after defecting to another party and say he is with President Buhari, he is a liar, he is not with President Muhammadu Buhari, it’s APC all the way.” 

According to him, the ongoing campaign is a journey of success, adding, “I work with some people in the campaign train and they proved that they have capacity and they will never fail.”

Shehu who represented the president at the APC governorship campaign at President Buhari’s village Dumurkol, Daura in Katsina State at the weekend, said “coming to campaign here it’s just to thank the people of Dumurkol because they need no lecture on whom to vote for to succeed President Buhari in 2023.”

According to him, what President Buhari said is ‘vote for Asiwaju and Shettima, Dikko Radda and Jobe for governor and also vote for Nasiru Sani as your Senator and other legislators.’

He said: “Every individual from Dumurkol or Daura or Katsina will market APC and anybody contesting under any other party should not be campaigned for because Nigeria has given Dumurkol, Daura and Katsina state what other states wanted to have and they never get because over 200 million Nigerians choose someone from this domain to lead the country for good eight years. 

“Nigerians have done everything to this community, Daura and Katsina State, so nobody can shame him here.

“President Buhari has done everything to Daura and Katsina state. Just yesterday we were in the road when I saw a trailer with load of irons for railway tracks to be laid from Daura to Katsina to Maradi and by God’s grace by the end of this admnistration train services will start from Kano to Daura,” the presidential aide said.

Meanwhile, the District Head of Dumurkol,  and President Buhari’s nephew, Alhaji Musa Haro, has assured Nigerians that the people of Daura and the entire Katsina state will vote massively for the Presidential candidate of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in the 2023 elections.

Haro also told journalists his people will vote Dr Dikko Radda for governor describing him as the  only credible governorship candidate for 2023 election in the state. 

His words: “I know Dikko Radda for over 30 years when we were in Kaduna back in 1993, he is humble, honest and a very good person and he values relationships and can govern Katsina very well.

“He was a local government chairman during the late Governor Yar’adua’s government, he was the first chairman that constructed a road more than 20 kilometres, he built schools, and hospitals and started women’s empowerment then. 

“Dr Dikko has the capacity, he was the Director General of SMEDAN (Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria), look at what he did across the country; the people of Katsina State are very lucky to have such a credible person as a candidate under APC. 

He is a PhD holder, he is highly intellectual, he was a lecturer and a career banker, so he has all the qualities. Look at what happened during the primaries, about nine aspirants contested for the governorship’s ticket under the platform of APC, but the people decided.

“So he’s been with these qualities and we believe he can deliver that is why we are all behind him, and look at what we did now in my own domain as a District Head, I have no doubt, Insha Allah, he is going to win the election come 2023 election,” the District Head assured.

Asked if the state will support Tinubu in 2023 elections, Haro said, “Of course, we don’t even need Tinubu to come to Katsina. Look at what he did in Lagos, loot at his network across the country. 

“When he was a governor in Lagos, he transformed the state. So I believe, it’s just a tradition, Asiwaju has to come to Katsina for campaign but in our base here in Katsina, take it from me Asiwaju is going to win with a high number of votes Insha Allah.”
