The kastina state governor elect Dikko Umaru-Radda has reveal that the real reason president elect bola tinubu lost in kastina is as a result of religious and tribal sentiment.
Radda made the revelation in an interview with news men in abuja. He said people where more interested in the governorship poll than the presidential poll.
From INEC results the PDP presidential candidate atiku abubakar polled a total of 489,045 to defeat his closest rival of the APC bola tinubu who scored 482,283 votes in the state.
Radda said”So for what really happened at the presidential election, you cannot take away tribal sentiment and religion, especially in the Core North. I think that was what played out and that was the reason we got that presidential margin in Katsina State.
“When it comes to gubernatorial election people were more concerned. They wanted to elect their governor and house of assembly members. It is only the elites that are concerned about the presidential election because they are the people that can reach out to Abuja, but people at the grassroots are concerned about who is going to be their governor.
“What Katsina did this time around was that they voted for credibility and merit. People no longer care about political party. I told you I have a very huge challenge because the people have a lot of confidence in me.”
