The former Director-General, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (SMEDAN), Alhaji Bature Masari has opened up to the real reason why he decided to decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress in Katsina State.
According to our sources, Alhaji Umar Masari made this known to the state’s executive Governor Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari when he led hundreds of his supporters who have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on a courtesy visit to Muhammadu Buhari House.
Our sources reports that Masari, a nephew to Gov. Aminu Masari, served as campaign Director-General of the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Musa Nashuni in the 2015 election.
Speaking while receiving the defectors, Gov. Masari said that he would remain a father to people of the state irrespective oftheir political affiliation or religious differences.
He said the defection of his nephew and his supporters was a victory to APC in the state and urged them to ensure the victory of the party in 2019.
In his remarks, Masari said that they decided to join APC because of the quality leadership being offered by the governor.
He assured that they were ready to build the party and ensure its victory in 2019 general elections.
It could be recalled that the state’s former Speaker of the House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ya’u Umar Gwajogwajo and former commissioner of Agriculture decamped to APC.
