A former executive secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf, said the people of Katsina will not vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu.
The Cable reported that the special adviser on community engagement to the Atiku/Okowa presidential campaign council said this during an interview on Channels Television on Monday, stating that Katsina people are tired of the APC-ruled government.
He said, “Our politics in Katsina has been vibrant from the beginning. We are not the people that anyone would say vote for this. If President Buhari raises his hand in Katsina. We will not vote for him.
“People are tired, they are fed up. They brought hired crowd from Kano, we saw the buses from Kano. Ganduje loaded them from there. These politicians do a lot of stuff, so don’t believe the optics. The reality is on the ground.”
The PDP chieftain said this in spite of the backing of the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (Ret’d.), which Tinubu supposedly enjoys, the former being an indigene of the state.
Also, during the party’s campaign in Katsina on February 6, Buhari had raised the hands of Tinubu as the next president of the country.
