2019 election: More trouble for Masari as Jikamshi joins Katsina guber race
Surveyor Abubakar Halilu Jikamshi has joined Katsina State gubernatorial race in the 2019 general elections on the platform of National Rescue Movement (NRM), Daily Trust reports.
Jikamshi, who is a former director at the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Abuja, said he was in the contest due to what he called “lack of focus and commitment to positive developments in the state.”
According to him, “Considering the foregoing and the yearnings for dedicated and focused leadership that will be all-inclusive in order to move the state forward, I made the hard decision to contest for the governorship of Katsina State under the platform of our new and promising young party, National Rescue Movement (NRM).”
He also said the achievements and hard work of past leaders in Katsina in terms of education and agriculture had been betrayed by a lack of purposeful leadership, hence his resolve to join the race to bring the needed change.
