Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina has dismissed reports that President Muhammadu Buhari is giving his home state special attention.
Speaking to newsmen, the governor said the state was not getting any special favour or attention from the Villa.
Masari said: ”You know this president is not somebody who will take projects to Katsina because he is from Katsina.
”Of course some investing companies or some ministries when you go and say you are from Katsina, they may look at you as somebody coming from the President’s state naturally, but for him to put a project in Katsina because it is his state, it won’t happen.”

”So it is no longer business as usual, I mean then, when you have a president from a state, everybody will be trooping there.
”How many jets have you seen here since he has been here? If it was the other time this place would have become a Mecca of some sought.
”Even I, in my small house here would have become a king. But this is not the kind of president we have. These are the kind of leaders the nation needs.”
