Media aide to the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Katsina state, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, has said that his principal, Aminu Bello Masari, is not an illiterate.
Malumfashi stated this in a statement to newsmen yesterday in Katsina, while reacting to a statement credited to the PDP zonal vice-chairman, Ibrahim Kazaure, where he allegedly describe Masari as an illiterate.
The media aide said “it takes one to know one, because his utterances portray him to be nothing but literate”.
“Vile languages and denigrating of members of the opposition have become their stock-in-trade. A couple of weeks ago, the PDP National Secretary supposedly a Professor, made similar remarks about APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari” he added.
He lamented that the leaders of the PDP have, according to him, resorted to discussing personalities instead of issues, adding that this clearly indicated lack of agenda in the forthcoming 2015 general elections.
