Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State plans to retire from active politics after his tenure as governor in 2023.
Masari told reporters during a press conference to mark Democracy Day in Katsina yesterday that he would retire to his farm after his tenure.
He said after serving in different capacities, including membership of the state executive council, member of the House of Representatives, Speaker of the green chamber of the National Assembly and now as governor, “what else am I looking for?”
He added: “My people from Katsina, like the late Umaru Musa Yar’adua, contested for President and won; Muhammadu Buhari, the same thing. He even served as military Head of State.
“I think it is better we leave the stage for other people from other places.”
According to him, his main concern now is how to fulfill his Restoration Agenda, which is to rehabilitate all the decayed infrastructure and bring back the past glories of the state.
“After I have satisfactorily succeeded in doing that, I will retire to my farm,” the governor said.
