Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State said that the election of Sen. Ahmed Bola Tinubu as President-elect of Nigeria, is like putting a ‘square peg in a square hole’.
Masari stated this while briefing newsmen in Katsina shortly after Tinubu was declared winner of the Saturday, Feb. 25, Presidential election.
The result of the presidential election was announced by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu at 4: 15 a.m. in Abuja.
According to him, Bola Tinubu is resouceful and has the brain and capacity to rule Nigeria.
He said that God had vindicated them by disappointing those who doubted their ability to elect Tinubu as president.
“We have delivered because we turned out en-mass with our supporters and voted Bola Tinubu as our President.
“I am still appealing to our supporters to come out in large numbers, and elect Umar Dikko-Radda, to succeed me as next Governor of Katsina State in the Gubernatorial election slated for Match 11,” Masari said.
He said Dikko- Radda was a fine leader that would consolidate on the gains he had achieved in the the state.
While commending INEC for conducting a free and fair election, Masari urged the electoral body not to listen to unpatriotic individuals.(NAN)(www.nannews.ng.)
