The leader of the group, Sir IKECHUKWU CHUKWUNYERE KSC, declared this at a crucial and special meeting held in Abuja on Wednesday.
Sir. Chukwunyere said the Igbo leaders after wide consultations have agreed to organize a Town Hall Meeting and an Endorsement Rally for His Excellency, Dr. Umaru Dikko Radda on Thursday, 29th of September, 2022
He said: “We are Ndigbo in APC from the 19 Northern states and we will remain bona-fide, patriotic and committed members of APC Nigeria, come what may.
“We are delighted to identify with Dr. Radda as one of the foremost potential political leader in contemporary Katsina State and political dispensation, “who is in the forefront of providing good governance and dividends of democracy in the state.”
“He is a vibrant young man, well articulated, energetic and technically sound to take up the baton from where Governor Aminu Masari will stop”.
“Dr. Radda, a former DG of SMEDAN is an exceptional politician and a distinguished leader, who will effect monumental democratic change in the state and by extension the country’s political evolution”
Having carefully extolled Radda’s visionary leadership qualities, forthrightness, and uncommon courage, we believe that Dr Radda would surely lead Katsina youths and the state to greater heights and out of economic peril.
He said, “It is in the light of this, that we are calling on all the Ndigbos, stakeholders and the good people of Katsina to support and cooperate with him to ensure victory for the Katsina APC in 2023 election.
