The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Katsina state chapter has demanded the immediate resignation of Governor Aminu Bello Masari over what it described as the alarming spate of kidnapping and banditry in the state.
The state chairman of the party, Hon. Salisu Yusuf Majigiri, stated this to newsmen shortly after inaugurating the state working committee of ‘Atiku Change the Change for Progress’, held at the party’s Conference Hall on Sunday.
About 10 people including two serving councillors from Batsari Local Government of the state were recently kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
He accused Governor Masari of negligence in his constitutional role of ensuring the safety of lives and property of the citizenry, saying the governor is incompetent to address the security situation of the state.
According to Majigiri, “The government is not competent enough to handle the issue of security because security is not one of their priorities. If it is one of their priorities, I think they will do more on security.”
However, the state Coordinator of Atiku Change the Change for Progress, Bello Ladan Baki, during the inauguration, assured the people that the group would provide 70 per cent of votes for Atiku in Katsina come 2019.
