The Senator representing Katsina North (Daura zone), Ahmad Babba – Kaita, has intensified efforts to completely dominate the political landscape of the zone with his acquisition of President Muhammadu Buhari’s first-ever campaign office in Daura, PREMIUM TIMES reports.
It was gathered that the campaign office located in the heart of Daura, Mr Buhari’s hometown, was acquired by The Buhari Organisation (TBO) in 2002 when he joined the All People’s Party contest for president for the first time in 2003.
Senator Ahmad who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP last April accused the state governor, Aminu Masari, of not carrying all ‘stakeholders’ along, not conducting local government elections, disobeying the foundation of democracy and not providing a level playing field for stakeholders in the state.
Similarly, the House of Representatives member representing Sandamu/ Daura /Maiadua, who is the president’s nephew, Fatuhu Muhammad, has dumped the APC.
He has not announced his new party but it’s believed he will soon join the PDP.
The office was reportedly used by TBO until last week when the senator bought the property from its owners.
The office also served as a rendezvous for several APC members including top executive members of the party in Daura.
After buying it, the Senator handed it over to the PDP to make it its local government head office.
