The Emir of Katsina, Alh. Abdulmumini Kabir, has thrown his weight behind Bola Tinubu’s candidacy ahead of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.
He made his position known in Katsina on Friday while receiving a strong delegation of the Arewa Organizations Movement in support of Tinubu’s presidential ambition that paid a courtesy visit to his palace.
According to the Emir. the former governor of Lagos State is competent and would be democratic if elected.
He said, “Tinubu is a material that has the capacity to salvage Nigerians from their present economic, social, and security predicaments.
“I know Asiwaju several years ago as he has closed affinity with my late father, the Emir of Katsina, Alh Muhammad Kabir Usman.”
“We consider Tinubu as a Katsina indigene as we have a long-standing relationship with him.
“We are hundred percent in support of him,” he said.
He also called on other Nigerians to support Tinubu in his bid to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari.
