Inuwa said: “The state has about 3.2 million voters, we want to win by a landslide, we want to have at least 80 per cent of the total number of votes.
“We are targeting no less than 2.8 million votes during the presidential election, that is because Katsina is an APC state and the state of Mr President.”
According to him, the state gave the President 1.5 million votes in 2015 and hopes to surpass the number on February 16.
Inuwa disclosed that the President would be in Katsina for his campaing rally on Thursday, February 14, 2019, and urged people of the state to come out en masse to welcome him.
The chairman further urged people of the state to conduct themselves in an orderly manner during the visit.
