Pushback as APC youth leader announces availability of ‘Jagaban army rice’ in Katsina


The announcement that “Jagaban army rice” is now available for distribution in Katsina state has sparked outrage on Twitter.


Dayo Israel, national youth leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) made the announcement in a tweet on Wednesday.


President Muhammadu Buhari hails from Katsina, one of the states in the north-west geopolitical zone experiencing insecurity.


In the tweet, Israel said more states would soon take delivery of the rice soon, noting that they were working “tirelessly” to ensure that.


 “Jagaban Army rice now available in Katsina for distribution this saturday during the Deliver your street day,” he wrote on Twitter.


“Should get to more states soon. Our youth leaders in the grassroot and our youth stakeholders are working tirelessly to mobilise, led by the Wing Commander.”

But Nigerians who commented on the post expressed their displeasure.


The youth leader had initially announced that the APC youth presidential campaign council had plans of distributing packs of rice across the country.


It is usual for politicians to share commodities during elections to woo the electorate to vote for them.
