ttee, we were heading some sub-committees of former legislators, former and serving governors and we made presentation and part of our recommendations was that apart from the independence of the electoral body, to establish this tribunal so that at least, this tribunal will help in sanitising the electoral process, the legal system as at today is prolonged and takes time and cases are decided when you have even forgotten about your offence and I think this will help to sanitise and make the elections more credible.”

The Governor dismissed fears over the controversy surrounding the mode of primaries of the ruling All Progressive Congress Congress (APC), saying that the constitution of the party provides for both direct and indirect primaries.

He said the issue should not, therefore, be a cause for concern as states are at liberty to adopt the one that suits them.

Masari stated, “It (direct or indirect primary) is not a hot cake. First of all, let me say from all the states that we have read and heard, Lagos, Kano and Niger are the only States that have opted for direct primaries in a country of 36 states plus FCT.

“I think it shouldn’t be a contentious issue. In fact, the constitution of the party is very clear. There is nothing contentious in this.

“The constitution of the party recognises direct, consensus and indirect primaries. So, whichever method is adopted, nobody is breaching the constitution of the party. So, what is the big deal about it?”

The governor expressed confidence that the people of Katsina State will vote overwhelmingly again for President Buhari to return to office next year.

He said, “The people of Katsina are 100% behind President Buhari and they will continue to support him even after the elections of 2019.

“We expect, based on figures coming out of the registered voters, to give him nothing less than 70 to 80%.

“We don’t have the figures now because they have completed additional registration. We are not talking about the last exercise that led to the election of 2015 and in 2015, he got almost 1.5 million votes from Katsina State.

“So, we expect, by 2019, we will be able to give him additional 1 million, making it not less than 2.5 million votes.”
