A sort of political tension has been gathering momentum in Katsina State especially among the ruling and opposition parties as the celebration of the 30 years anniversary of the State is about to kick start.
KATSINA POST checks revealed that the major issue attracting all these negative tension and comments is the omission of the Katsina immediate former Governor Barrister Ibrahim Shehu Shema on the event’s programme menu already circulating.
On the menu, it could be observed that Barrister Shema’s name of omitted under the State’s Pioneer Governors. Those listed on that Category are Alhaji Sa’idu Barda and Alhaji Ummaru Musa Yar’adua.
But as the Chairman of the committee organizing the celebration event, the Secretary to the Government of the State (SGS) Alhaji Mustapha Muhammad Inuwa explained why they took that decision while addressing a press conference yesterday’s evening in the Katsina State’s Government House.
According to him, the state decides to award only the Pioneer Civilian Governors of the State and which unfortunately Barrister Shema did not fall into the category.
Also, Maiwada Danmalam who was S.A to Governor Masari on Social Media said the list contained those to be awarded and not all former Governors, so it is in no way compulsory for his name to be listed since he will not be given any award.
