Reaction as Northern Emir reportedly endorce Gubernatorial candidate
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State has reacted to the alleged endorsement of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Guber Candidate of the state, Dr Dikko Umar Radda, by the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir Usman.
This was disclosed by the state’s PDP 2023 campaign Director, Dr Mustapha Inuwa, while answering questions from Newsmen during a press briefing in the state.
Inuwa said the endorsement was the personal view of the Emir and not the views of the entire Emirate.
“The Emir’s endorsement should not be regarded as a threat to PDP”.
The PDP Campaign Director maintained that even now if INEC place a ballot box at the premises of the Emirate Council, Lado would defeat Dikko.
“PDP will therefore lose only the Emir’s vote but not that of others close to him or those within Kofar Soro”.
“Lado of the PDP is the only credible candidate to beat in the 2023 Gubernatorial election amongst others in the state”, Inuwa concluded.
