Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State has said that the recent defection of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, means that he (Atiku) has “answered his popular name.”
Masari said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN in Maiadua, Katsina State on Monday.
He said the former Vice president’s defection would not in any way affect the electoral success of the ruling APC.
Masari said the ruling party was aimed at repositioning the nation by creating leaders that would champion the positive cause of the nation and that “about 65 per cent of our political appointments were allocated to the youth.”
According to the governor, the era of “do or die politics was over as individual character and his performance speak for him in a political warfare, not unnecessary pride and display of wealth.”
He said APC in the state and federal levels would not be deterred by elitist tendencies.
