Governor Yari speaks On Dumping APC for Other Parties



Gov. Yari Reacts to Buhari Govt’s Ban On Mining

The Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, has claimed he was under intensive pressure to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) with his supporters.

He handed over the results of the primaries he conducted to the President.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), had in fact, barred APC from fielding any candidates for the 2019 poll in Zamfara, for not conducting primary elections.

Reacting to reports of his purported romance with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Yari, who was flanked by the Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, said, “I don’t know whether that is a joke or otherwise.

But for me, if you check my history since 1998, APP, and 2002 when Buhari joined ANPP, and 2015 APC, no time that I shifted from one party to another. That is not in my culture. So, the issue of leaving the party is not true.

“But some other people are sending rumour through the social media. I have seen my picture with the PDP and other parties. Yes, I cannot deny pressure from the people that we should leave APC but what I told them is that what we are looking for is just justice.

“We conducted election and we want to see what the result is going to look. But I think for any body to come under the national secretariat and say he is going to nominate a candidate, I think, it is a very huge joke,” he said
