The chief of staff, Katsina State Government House, Bello Mandiya, has clinched the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial ticket for Katsina South.
The former Managing Director of the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA), Mr. Kabiru Abdullahi Barkiya, Thursday defeated the incumbent senator representing Katsina Central at the red chamber, Ibrahim Umar Kurfi, to emerge the All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for the zone.
Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto, says the emergence of Goodluck Jonathan as acting president was due to the actions of some people including Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa.
Yar’Adua was elected in 2007 but died on May 5, 2010 at a hospital in Saudi Arabia. Goodluck Jonathan, his vice-president at the time, replaced him as president.
