Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has mocked the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
According to him, Atiku Abubakar will lose in 2023 because he’s a veteran loser.
Masari stated this during an interview with TVC on Wednesday.
The governor said, “I think Atiku is a formidable force, but our force is greater than him, and he knows that. He is a veteran of contesting elections and also a veteran loser.”
Masari dismissed talks that 2023 is Atiku’s best chance of becoming President.
“That was said several times, and it never came to pass, and this one will never come to pass,” he said.
He said the All Progressives Congress standard bearer, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. is the best candidate and will become Nigeria’s President in 2023 “Insha Allah.”
“Who is better than him in the political terrain of Nigeria today?” Masari asked.
He said Northerners have bought into Tinubu’s candidacy.
Masari said, “They’ve already bought into it. First of all, Bola is not a new name in the politics of Nigeria, and we, the people of Katsina, know the role played by Bola Tinubu in 2015 for the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari. We know the support he gave in 2019 for the continuation of Muhammadu Buhari. We, here in Katsina, are not ingrates.”
Speaking on the chances of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, he said, “I don’t know him. Somebody who was a governor of Anambra? Go and ask a Katsina man and the politicians, how many of them know Peter Obi? We are talking about a presidential candidate of Nigeria, somebody who has cut all barriers – tribal, religious, regional, name it.”
