Mr Darma endorsed the APC candidate on Thursday in Katsina.

“Dr Dikko Radda has the capacity, the qualifications and experience to move the state out of the woods; we need to attain our goals,” Mr Darma said.
He called on NNPP supporters to back the APC candidate in the March 18 election.
Responding, Mr Radda appreciated Mr Darma for the support towards his victory and success of the APC in the election and pledged to run an inclusive government if elected.
Reacting to his deputy’s action, Mr Khalil described it as a betrayal.
