According to him, the massive influx was as a result of acceptance of the efforts of the APC led government of President Muhammadu Buhari adding that ‘the president works and that of his disciples have endured many.
However, shortly after the rally, the state PDP chairman Salisu Majigiri in a chat with newsmen said Oyegun assertion is far from the truth noting that PDP in Katsina is strong, vibrant and virile ready like never before to send the ruling APC parking come 2019.
According to him, what oyegun saw was a rented crowd of persons paid from Zamfara and other neighbouring states noting that the crowd was just an illusion that cannot hold waters in reality.
“How can a state that produce a president from the PDP can be said to be dead, this is untrue and cannot be accepted’ he said.
Majigiri refer Oyegun to the recent bye election result which the party is presently challenging noting that from what INEC declares as our votes alone you can’t say PDP is dead.
