The Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would win the elections with a margin of 30 million votes.
The governor made reference to the massive registration of APC members across the country during the party’s membership registration and revalidation exercise, stressing that even if only 70 per cent of those registered came to vote in the forthcoming polls, the party is sure of getting 30 million votes.
He said: “APC has done well all over the country and we are going back for state congresses and finally we cap it to the national convention that would produce elected leaders of the party.
“We are laying solid foundation for APC, preparing it for 2023 elections which I hope APC would win by a wide margin, because if we took the registration of membership of the APC even if 70 per cent of those who registered came out to vote for APC, APC is sure of getting close to 30 million votes.”
Masari, who spoke shortly after receiving the mid-term report of the last local government congress of the party from the National Working Committee headed by Aliyu Kumo on Wednesday, said “So we can say that success is only a short distance from us. We will be there and we will achieve it.”
He explained that APC in the state adopted consensus for the just concluded ward and local government congresses held across the 34 local government areas and 361 political wards of the state after a unanimous decision taken during APC stakeholders’ meeting in the state.
