Dr. Dikko Umar Radda, the victor of the Katsina State governorship election held on March 18, 2023, was sworn in as governor of the state on Monday at the Muhammadu Dikko Township Stadium in Katsina.

Dikko, 52, served as the chief of staff to Masari for a period, the former director general of SMEDAN, and the chairman of the Charanchi Local Government Council.

Senator Yakubu Lado Danmarke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dikko’s major opponent in the Katsina 2023 gubernatorial election, had earlier promised to go to court to contest the outcome but reneged on the plan, clearing the way for Dikko to enjoy his first term reign without opposition.
