Former governor Ibrahim Shehu Shema of Katsina State has enjoined citizens of the state to vote out his successor, Aminu Beĺlo Masari insisting that he has demonstrated lack of capacity to effectively govern the state. Leadership Newspaper reports.
Shema also urged his successor not to drag him into the internal wranglings of the ruling APC in the State.
Shema, in a statement signed by his media team, accused the incumbent administration in the state of demonstrating clear “lack of capacity for good governance”.
The statement which was signed by Oluwabusola Olawale was in response to a statement credited to Governor Aminu Bello Masari in a rejoinder by one Muhammed Sani.
In the said statement, Governor Masari was said to have disclosed that he inherited the sum of N4 billion from the former Governor Ibrahim Shehu Shema administration.
But Shema said the claim was falsehood of the highest order and insisted that he left the sum of N14 billion in the coffers of the state as at May 29, 2015, when he handed over.
“We are glad that he admitted over N4 billion was inherited by his administration.While we will not like to join issues with the administration that has demonstrated clearly lack of capacity for good governance, we make bold to state that the sum of over N14 billion was left in the coffers of both Katsina State Government and Local Government as at May 29, 2015.
