- From Danjuma Michael, Katsina

THE Katsina State chapter of the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Aminu Bello Masari to contest for another term in office in the 2019 general elections.

The two leaders were endorsed during the weekend by the ruling party following a resolution contained in communiqué signed by the Chairman, Shittu S. Shittu.

The party also dissociate­d itself from a factional group, APC AKIDA, saying the group was not conducting itself within the ambit of its constituti­on. Shittu said the party unanimousl­y endorsed Buhari and Masari in recognitio­n of their laudable performanc­es in the last two years. The party commended the Buhari administra­tion for its resolute fight against corruption, war against insecurity, Boko Haram and armed robbery among others.

According to Shittu, “The endorsemen­t was in recognitio­n for the administra­tion’s effort at moving the economy forward and its efforts to bring Nigeria out of recession.”

The APC said it endorsed Masari in recognitio­n of his “transparen­t administra­tion, open door policy and wonderful achievemen­ts recorded within the short period of two years.”

It said Masari’s administra­tion had performed excellentl­y in various sectors, including education, health, security, water supply, infrastruc­tural developmen­t and empowermen­t of the people.
