2023: Gov Masari denies plans to contest senatorial seat

Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, has said he has no plans to contest for any political office in the 2023 elections.

His Chief of Staff, Muntari Lawal, said this while reacting to posters indicating that the Governor was contesting for a senatorial seat.

Masari maintained that he has never discussed with anyone that he will contest for any political position.

Lawal further stated that if the posters were circulated by the Governor’s supporters, they were not being fair to him.

This, he said was because he was not consulted about his views on such a decision.

He added that the posters are a calculated attempt to tarnish his image and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I have never discussed with anyone that I will contest for any political position, not to even talk of contesting for the office of the Senator for Katsina Central,” he said.

“Just imagine, even if I am contesting, how can I contest the position which my in-law is occupying? He is not only my in-law but also my neighbour.

“Can you see the problem? So, they want to knock our heads together. Am not that type. This is an attempt to cause confusion or misunderstanding between us.”
