ABUJA, Jan 30, (THEWILL) – The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Katsina has named Alhaji Abdulazeez Musa Yar’adua, one of the younger brothers of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, as running mate to Governorship candidate in the April election, Senator Garba Yakubu Lado.

The announcement was made by Senator Lado in Abuja today during a session with journalists.

Katsina is presently in the safe hands of the People Democratic Party (PDP).

Lado said the choice of Abdulazeez Yar’Adua, a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Nigerian Army was based on the leadership attributes and pedigree of the Yar’Adua family.

The election in Katsina is expected to be a battle between three main parties in the north; the PDP, CPC and the ANPP.
