Anxity as 57 aspirants fight for 15 Katsina APC House of Representatives tickets
No fewer than 57 aspirants will jostle for the 14 House of Representatives tickets of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Katsina State ahead of the upcoming 2019 general elections.
This was confirmed to our source by the spokesman of the Katsina APC, Abubakar Gambo Danmusa in a telephone interview earlier.
The primary election for the aspirants will, all things being equal, hold tonight across the state and winners will be expected to emerge thereafter.
Katsina Post learned that the party officials in the state had during the last weekend met with the contestants in a bid to produce consensus candidate but all efforts for that failed.
It could be recalled that the APC had conducted senatorial election primaries in the state which resulted in the emergence of Hon. Ahmad Babba Kaita, Bello Mandiya, and Kabir Barkiya as candidates for Daura, Funtua and Katsina senatorial zones.
