Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has absolved President Muhammadu Buhari of any blame regarding the sudden postponement of the general election that is supposed to hold Saturday at the early hours of the day.
Masari stated this while reacting to the opposition political parties insinuating that President Muhammadu Buhari was behind the postponement of the Saturday’s election.
According to him, anybody who wants to be fair to himself and to the nation, the blame should be at the doorstep of the INEC. It is the INEC that didn’t take dictation from the President. All the resources were given to them.
The Governor continued when he cautioned the umpire body not to develop the culture of postponing and shifting elections noting that this is the third time, in 2011, 2015 and now 2019.
Meanwhile, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Ibrahim Zarewa, has admitted that there was a serious mix up in the materials sent to the state, saying that when the sorting was ongoing, it was discovered that materials of Kano and FCT were discovered in the materials sent to Katsina.
