President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has urged residents of Daura in Katsina State to support the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in the forthcoming 2023 election.
Naija News reports that Shehu made the call during the weekend at a meeting with the APC presidential campaign council members in Katsina with President Buhari’s nephew, Alhaji Musa Haro, in attendance.
Earlier at the meeting, Haro, who is the District Head of Dumurkol, declared that his people would give maximum support to the APC presidential candidate and governorship candidate of the state.
In his address, Shehu charged the people to be firm with their promises so they would save the president from embarrassment.
While reacting to the ongoing campaign for the APC governorship candidate in the state, the presidential aide said he is confident that the exercise is a journey of success for the ruling party in Katsina and across the country.
Representing President Buhari at the event, Shehu said: “I work with some people in the campaign train, and they proved that they have the capacity and they will never fail.
“Coming to campaign here, it’s just to thank the people of Dumurkol because they need no lecture on whom to vote for to succeed Buhari in 2023.”
Do Not Campaign For Any Politician In The Opposition Camp
Shehu further urged the people not to campaign for any politician from the opposition camp claiming to be with Buhari.
He stressed that Dumurkol, Daura or the entire Katsina will market only APC in the forthcoming election. ”Vote for Asiwaju and Shettima for President and Vice-President, Dikko Radda and Jobe for governor and also vote for Nasiru Sani as your Senator and other APC legislators.
“Vote for APC from top to bottom; whoever comes here after decamping to another party and says he is with President Buhari, he is a liar; he is not with Buhari; it’s APC all the way,” the presidential aide said.
He added: ”Every individual from Dumurkol or Daura or Katsina will market APC and anybody contesting under any other party should not be campaigned for.
”Nigeria has given Dumurkol, Daura and Katsina state what other states wanted to have and they never get because over 200 million Nigerians chose someone from this domain to lead the country for good eight years.
“Nigerians have done everything to this community, Daura and Katsina State, so nobody can shame him here.”
Shehu asserted that President Buhari had done everything good for Daura and Katsina state, hence deserved honour.
“Just yesterday, we were on the road when I saw a trailer with a load of irons for railway tracks to be laid from Daura to Katsina to Maradi.
”By God’s grace, by the end of this administration, train services will start from Kano to Daura,” the presidential aide said.
