The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Katsina State, Alhaji Aminu Masari, has said the power of the electorate in the state will play out in the party’s favour next month when it goes to the polls against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Masari, who is a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, said the APC’s mass appeal and support at the grassroots have put it head and shoulder above other political parties in the state.
According to him, citizens’ disenchantment with the current PDP government over the spate of insecurity and poor state of the economy are responsible for the yearning of the people for change.
The APC governorship candidate spoke in Katsina at the presentation of Alhaji Mannir Yakubu to party leaders and other candidates as his running mate in next month’s general elections, by the chairman of the party in the state, Dr. Mustapha Inuwa.
He said the issue of homogenous relationship within the party has become pertinent, going by the antics of other political parties in the race to capture the state.
“APC is ready for the polls and we will ensure that their plans to manipulate the voters did not succeed”, Masari declared and enjoined party members to maintain their trust in the party and where there were grievances, such issues should be tabled and addressed.
He also pledged that an APC government would institute mechanism aimed at curbing insurgencies and youth restiveness in the country.
Yakubu in his acceptance speech, charged the party members to be more committed and loyal to the APC.
