Insecurity, Other Problems Won't Stop APC From Winning 2023 Elections - Masari

Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari has again sacked some officials of his cabinet ahead of the governorship polls.

Naija News reports that this time around, the Chairman of the state transport authority, Alhaji Bilyaminu Mohammed Rimi, the Special Adviser on Girl Child, Hajiya Amina Lawal and the immediate past chairman of the state APC, Alhaji Shitu Shitu who was the State Pilgrims Welfare Board were affected.

This online news platform recalls that the governor about two weeks ago sacked the state Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Hon. Tasi’u Dandagoro, the Permanent Secretary, of the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Aminu Waziri, the Chairman, Katsina State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Yusuf Barmo, and the Permanent Secretary, Sustainable Development Goals, Fatima Ahmed.

Even though speculations were that those he sacked were reportedly involved in anti-party activities, Masari explained that it was part of his administration’s move to strategic, realignment and adjustment of his cabinet.

However, in this new wave of sacking spree, the governor in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Muntari Lawal disclosed that Danlami has been appointed as the Commissioner of Sports after he lost the bid to return to the Federal House of Representatives as member Representing Katsina Constituency.
