Tinubu helped me, I cannot disown him -Emir of Katsina

The Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmuminin Kabir Usman, says that a presidential hopeful and former Lagos State governor Bola Tinubu is his benefactor and it is difficult to disown him now.

The emir stated this when Tinubu’s political support group, Arewa Organisation Movement for Asiwaju visited him at this palace. The group is led by Senator Abu Ibrahim.

“I knew Tinubu when he was governor while I was district head and he has assisted me in many ways.

“Now that I am on the throne, he is contesting for president, tell me why I should disown him.

“We will look into whatever movement he is into, where we will support where there is need to support and we will correct where necessary.

“So, this man that you brought, Tinubu, is home here, he is son of the soil and he has done a lot for me.

“I was in Lagos some three weeks ago, the first since 1967 and I have seen how Lagos is transformed and I concluded that all the country’s wealth is in Lagos,” he said.

Speaking, the leader of delegation,  Senator Ibrahim said Tinubu has the wherewithal of addressing the challenges of the country.
