"The act of governance in Katsina is difficult; therefore, the governor-elect should strive hard to provide dividends of democracy to the people," he said.

The governor said that the People's Democratic Party (PDP) government that ruled the state under him for eight years delivered democratic dividends in education, health, agriculture and infrastructural development.

He urged youths to avoid taking law into their hands while celebrating the victory of the APC in the state, advising that they should be peaceful in the celebrations.
