President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Alhaji Musa Haro, has named his preferred presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections.
According to the president’s aide, Garba Shehu, the District Head of Dumurkol has declared his support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He quoted the traditional title holder as saying that his community in Daura and the entire residents of Katsina State would vote massively for the former Governor of Lagos State in the coming election.
Naija News understands that Haro made the declaration during the weekend when he met with Shehu and other chieftains of the APC including those Dumurkol people in the presidential campaign council.
Speaking further, Haro assured that his people would also vote for the APC governor candidate in the state, Dikko Radda.
He described the gubernatorial candidate as the only credible person for the 2023 election in the state. He said: “I know Dikko Radda for over 30 years since when we were in Kaduna back in 1993.
”He is humble, honest and a very good person and he values relationships and can govern Katsina very well.
“He was a Local Government Chairman during the late governor Yar’adua’s government, he was the first chairman that constructed a road more than 20 kilometres, he built schools, and hospitals and started women’s empowerment then.”
When asked directly whether the state will support Tinubu in the 2023 elections, Haro said: ”Of course, we don’t even need Tinubu to come to Katsina. Look at what he did in Lagos, look at his network across the country.
“When he was a governor in Lagos, he transformed the state. So, I believe, it’s just a tradition, Asiwaju has to come to Katsina for campaign but in our base here in Katsina, take it from me, Asiwaju is going to win with a high number of votes, In sha Allah.”
