From Lawal Sa’idu Funtua, Katsina
The General Manager of Katsina State Transport Authority (KTSTA), Gambo Abdulkadir Rimi has urged former Speaker of House of Representatives and APC guber candidate, Aminu Bello Masari to stop deceiving Katsina people with political rhetorics.
Rimi, in a press statement signed by him and made available to newsmen, was reacting to recent media reports credited to the former speaker where he (former speaker) reportedly said he was indebted to the state and its people.
He said such utterances were mere gimmicks insisting that the former speaker had the privilege of serving in different capacities without doing anything tangible for the state.
He said Katsina State was not desirous of the type of transformation championed by the former speaker as according to him, Governor Shema has put the state on a pedestal of growth.
“Let me state unequivocally, that Katsina State has never had it good as it is currently witnessing under the current dispensation of our amiable governor. From 2007 to date, under the watchful eyes and upright stewardship of Governor Shema, the state has witness transformation in all sectors of its economy”.
“The state has more road networks cris-crossing every nook and cranny, youths empowerment has been accorded top most priority, education receives deserved attention and the story is the same in all the sectors of agriculture, health care delivery”
Continuing, the transport authority boss said “Masari claimed he will ensure children of all those in his government attend public schools but we know that since his days as general manager of state water board, his children are attending private schools”
“We know that when he was the speaker, his son was schooling in London. Is he saying he never saw any public school then till now that he is seeking the coveted seat of governor? This is an attempt to deceive the good people of Katsina state” he added.
