Former Governor of Katsina State, Barr. Ibrahim Shema, has enjoined his successor, Goveror Aminu Bello Masari to focus his energy on critical issues of governance in the state and not embark on witch hunt.
In a statement signed by head of his media team, Oluwabusola Olawale, and made available to journalists on Wednesday, the ex-governor tasked Masari to focus on how to fulfil his campaign promises.
He specifically advised the governor against embarking on witch hunt of officials of his administration, saying it “will not help in the delivery of dividends of democracy”.
Continuing, Shema said “it will be in the interest of the state if the new administration is focus on issues of governance not witch hunting”.
The former governor, who was reacting to a statement credited to Governor Masari that his (Shema’s) ADC received N680 million from council chairmen for security related issues, described the allegation as regrettable and unfortunate.
Shema pointed out that his administration left over N4 billion in the state treasury and paid salary for the month of May by 24th for both the state and local government workers.
