The Katsina state governor Aminu Bello Masari has described the emergence of APC Akida faction as deliberate plot to discredit and attack the personality of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor disclosed this in an interview with reporters in Katsina when ask how come Katsina APC is factionalized under his watch.
He revealed “The people around here understand the mind-set of those behind the factionalisation that, in this part of the country, it will be suicidal for anybody or group to attack the personality of Mr. President, so they have to come through the back door, thinking doing so will destabilize the party in his home state. He added
“In other states, the governors are the leaders of the party, but, in Katsina, I am not the leader because the President is from here, but I hold the forte for him.
According to him, discrediting the Party is same as to discredit the president.
“If these people are genuine and they mean well, if they had any complaint, since we have a leader, they should lay their complaint before him.
“The President is accessible to most of them. So I expect that they would have channeled their grievances either against me or the party or the government of Katsina to the President. Unfortunately, they chose to go to the market place. He added
