Tinubu donates N100m to victims of banditry in Katsina – Masari

The governor of Katsina, Aminu Masari, announced on Monday that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, had donated N100 million to the state’s banditry victims.

The governor said his administration was making every effort to put an end to the recent wave of insecurity plaguing the state while making the announcement at the APC Presidential campaign rally in Katsina.

He claimed that the APC presidential candidate donated the money so that it could be given to the state’s entire population of insecurity victims.

Additionally, he prayed to God to forgive the souls of the more than 40 volunteers who had recently been killed by terrorists in the state and to reveal those responsible.

Gov. Masari told the gathering that leadership is not a matter of joke, adding that, “it is an issue that needs people that are capable of delivering.”

He called on the people to ensure that they vote for APC at all levels, saying that the party has done well in the past seven and half years of its governance.

“When you play with leadership for a second, you will face the consequences for years.

“The 2023 general election is between brightness and darkness, and APC represents the brightness.

“The earlier opportunity the other people had, they didn’t utilise it to help Nigerians, but the little we had, everybody has seen what we have done.

“There was never a time that women and youths were involved in politics and election like now, because President Muhammad Buhari had brought a lot of empowerment programmes.

“Especially here in Katsina, over N37 billion was shared among the low income people in the state within just six years.

“Therefore, you should shun anyone telling you lies. You should vote for APC in the forthcoming elections,” he said.

Gov. Masari said if previous governments had done the right thing, Nigeria wouldn’t have experienced any form of insecurity, especially Boko Haram, cattle rustling and illiteracy.

According to him, they (previous governments) had the opportunity but were not able to utilise it.

He, therefore, urged the people not to allow anyone tell them lies about insecurity or poverty. (NAN)
