The 2019 general elections have been won and lost in Katsina in what can be rightly termed as a largely peaceful exercise.

The gubernatorial election keenly contested by Governor Aminu Bello Masari and Senator Yakubu Lado and was won by the former.
Bellow are some people that contributed immensly to the Governor’s re-election:
The Secretary to the Government of the State (SGS) is believed to be the most influential person in Governor Masari’s government.
He chairs the campaign committee for the governorship election of 2019 and had been in charge of all that happened during the campaign so also carries all the accolades for the successes achieved.
He is a dogged fighter, good crowd mobilizer, and an effective campaign planner.
Hajiya Mariyatu Bala Usman
No doubt, women contributed immensely to the success achieved by APC in Katsina and were arguably the large voting block that voted for Governor Aminu Bello Masari.
If that is to go by, then, no doubt that the Katsina State’s Honourable Commissioner of Health, Hajiya Mariyatu Bala Usman is among those who led the women-wing of the campaign for Governor Masari’s re-election.
Hajiya Mariyatu had through her ‘APC Sak movement’ mobilized women and campaigned for not only Governor Masari’s re-election but also all other candidates of the APC at all levels during the campaign.

Hon. Musa Adamu
Honorable Musa Adamu Funtua, Dan Kafin Hausa and former member House of Assembly member also contributed immensely to the success of Governor Masari’s re-election bid.
