The candidate and his entourage stormed the ancient city pulling large crowds after going round wards in the municipal local government area.

This was contained in a statement that was signed and issued to PRIME TIME NEWS by Adamu S. Ladan, Member of the Media and Publicity Committee, APC Campaign Council, Katsina State.

According to Ladan, before arriving at the emir of Katsina’s palace with swarms of supporters, the candidate had visited district heads in their domains where he addressed ward heads as well as Imams.

Receiving the candidate in his palace, declared his support for Dr. Radda whom he described as a blood relation.

 While describing the visit as home coming, the emir however advised the candidate to rule with fear of God if elected into power.

Dr. Radda is a descendant of late emir of Katsina, Muhammadu Dikko.

The emir of Katsina, Alhaji abdulmumini kabir Usman while receiving the APC Gubernatorial Candidate and his entourage in his palace.

As a demonstration of show of strength,  Dr. Radda who thronged major streets with his entourage trekked to old township stadium, venue of the local government rally from the emir’s palace bringing the routes connecting to the location to a standstill.

Overwhelmed by the huge crowds who have been waiting for him at the stadium, the candidate reiterates his commitment to deal fairly with every segment of the state and reassured the crowd not to disappoint them.

He therefore urged people of Katsina state to vote wisely by choosing whom he described as their own.

The candidate also took time to visit the mother of former president, Umaru Musa Yar’aduwa  where prayers were offered for the repose of the souls of the late president and his brother Shehu Musa Yar’aduwa.

Among the entourage that accompanied the candidate was Col. Abdulaziz Musa Yar’aduwa a.k.a Audu Soja, brother to the president who also holds the APC’s ticket for the Katsina central senatorial District.
