*Says Katsina State gave Tinubu the 3rd highest votes in the presidential poll
The Director General of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Campaign Council in Katsina State, Arch. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, has urged the people of the state to ignore the recent accusations of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state lamenting the purported reckless squandering of public funds by the APC government.
Addressing a press conference in Katsina on Thursday, Dangiwa said politics is behind the allegations and expressed gratitude that the electorate in the state kept faith with the APC and its candidates in February 25 presidential and national elections as the party swept the three senatorial seats and nine out of the 15 House of Representatives slots across the state.
He noted: “That’s why we will not dignify anyone with an answer when he makes wild and frivolous allegations against us. We know it’s nothing but the last kicks of a dying horse.
“We therefore advise anyone who feels aggrieved to avail himself of the various channels of seeking redress and not engage in petty issues that have no foundation in truth.
“We are also not unmindful of the veiled threat in their ranting and all we have to say to that is that anyone who foments trouble will run foul of the laws of the land and security agencies will know what to do with him. We are law abiding citizens as you have witnessed throughout our campaigns, unlike some of our opponents.”
The APC chieftain also commended the mandate given to the party’s presidential standard bearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, at the last weekend general elections to rule the nation, saying the victory will not have been possible without tenacity and conviction of the party faithful and other Nigerians.
The APC big wig, who disclosed that the state gave the party’s presidential candidate third largest votes in the Saturday’ presidential election, assured that the party witnessed how the people of the state toiled until victory was achieved.
“I, particularly, acknowledge the contribution of women and youths, who voted massively for our candidates,” said Dandiwa. # # # # # # # #
