The Emir of Katsina, Dr Abdulmuninin Kabir Usman said there’s no way he could work against the presidential ambition of the former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu considering his long standing relationship with the Emirate which predates his ascension to the throne.
Emir disclosed this when he received in his palace delegation members of the Arewa organization. Movement for Tinubu’s 2023 presidency led by Senator Abdul Ibrahim. He gave his words that he will look into the political aspiration of the APC national leader offering advice contribution and corrections whenever the need arises.
Thus he said “We will look into whatever movement he is into, where we will support where there is need to support and we will correct where necessary. I knew Tinubu when he was Governor and I was district head, He has assisted me in many ways. Now that I am on the throne, he is contesting for president, tell me why I should disown him. So, this man that you brought, Tinubu, is home here, he is the son of the soil and he has done a lot for me. I was in Lagos some three weeks ago, the first since 1967 and I have seen how Lagos has transformed and I concluded that all the country’s wealth is in Lagos.”
Emir Usman also noted that with the prevailing unity challenges bedeviling the country, particularly the north which he said was man made, there was a need for Nigerians to purposefully this time elect a credible leader that can tame the monster and return the country to path of normalty.
The royalty father urged Nigerians to guard and safeguard the sanctity of the nation stressing that “Nigeria is the only country we have. Therefore, the need to eschew myopic sentiments and work together to ensure that the country knows peace and makes progress for the benefit of all citizens.”
