Election: Northern Govs Supported Tinubu To Uphold APC Zoning Formula – Masari

By Miriam Humbe
Outgoing Governor of Katsina State,  Aminu Bello Masari told the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruq-Umar that the Northern Governors under the All Progressives Congress (APC) supported Tinubu in order to respect the zoning formula of the party.
Governor Masari who was at the Emir’s palace on Thursday for a farewell visit said that he and other Northern Governors supported the presidential ambition of the Senator Bola Tinubu.
Masari said: “God had saved us from shame during the last general elections in the country where our party, the All Progressives Congress APC recorded huge successes.
“Any one in this country with foresight, should thank God again because had it been our party did not win the election, people may think that the Federal Government failed Nigerians.
“Whatever someone planned in this country, God has helped President Muhammad Buhari to defend his integrity, because if we had failed in the election, he would be the first to be blamed.
“Those with foresight have seen that, especially we the governors from the north under the APC. We have seen attempts to tarnish the image of Buhari.
“Everybody knows that all the political parties believe in zoning, but some people in our party wanted to keep that aside, but we rejected their attempt.”
Masari blamed opposition parties for their woes, saying that the lack of respect for the zoning arrangement by some of them brought them into the crises rocking them.
The outgoing Governor of Katsina State said: “So, if we had done such, only God would know the situation in the country at the moment. Therefore, we had to stick to our promises.
“That’s why the Northerners then succeeded and earned respect for our people, because once we said yes, it’s always yes”.
