Katsina: Masari receives APGA decampees as TATA says they’re ‘Politically irrelevant’
Governor of Katsina State receives decampees from the state chapter of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the ruling party -All Progressive Congress (APC) led by Alhaji Shehu Dabai at Muhammadu Buhari House in Katsina.
Alhaji Masari said during the grand reception for the decampees that with the emergence of APC in the state and the country at large, the problem of Boko Haram and cattle rustling is gradually phasing out. The Governor also stated that the federal government also approved N100b in order to boost cotton and rice production in the 7 states of North west.
He the charged the youth in the state to embrace farming as no nation will blossom if it can’t feed its self.
He then charged the decampees of equal treatment.
In their remarks, the governor’s special adviser on political matters Alhaji Usman Bala Zango and an APC elder Architect Ahmad Musa Dangiwa said the decampees resolved to joined the APC after being satisfied with the quality of leadership it is offering in the state.
However, in a swift reaction by the founder of the APGA party in the state and its gubernatorial candidate in the last general election, Alhaji Umar Abdu Tsauri popularly known as TATA described the decampees as ‘a group of irrelevant political desparadoes’.
Tata made this description in a lengthy article that looks more like an open later to the governor on his facebook page on thursday, 28th July, and titled ‘Masari Do Not Be Fooled By These Hired Desparadoes’
He also stated that “these people (while pointing to the leaders of the decapees delegation) were the same people that were used by the same APC hypocrisy to subvert the will of the ordinary masses of Katsina State during the 2015 general elections in claiming theat Umar Tata was out of the race.”
What ever it is, the Katsina State citizens will be keenly watching as the political drama ahead of 2019 general elections continue to unfold.
