The opposition party of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State has alleged that the state government led by the Governor Aminu Bello Masari of the ruling All progressives Congress Party (APC) are conniving with the State Security agencies in destroying their campaign billboards on roadside across the state.
This was disclosed to KATSINA POST by the Chairman of the Party in the state and also the Deputy Governor candidate for the PDP in the coming elections, Hon. Salisu Yusuf Majigiri.
“The government in collaboration with security officials in the state remove our billboards on the roadside anytime the Governor is going to pass. This happened when the Governor was going to Daura and same is happening now that he will go to Funtua”. The Chairman said.
“Katsina state being it the state the President is expected to be following rule of law but I think it is where the law is abused the most in Nigeria. We pay all that is necessary to the relevant agencies before we erect our billboards.” He added.
He then urged the government and security agencies to respect the rule of law governing the conduct of elections in the country because they have a limit to what they can tolerate.
