Why Governors Of The 36 States Will Work For Buhari’s Re-Election – Yari



Governor Yari Speaks On Buhari’s Second Term

Governor Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara state says the 36 state governors will work together for the successful re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming general elections.

The Zamfara governor is the chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).

He made the comment on Tuesday in Abuja at the inauguration of a group known as ‘Forward With Buhari Grassroots Mobilisers Goodwill Ambassadors’.

Yari said governors across the federation will rather vote for President Buhari even if they belong to opposition parties.

He said the president has done a lot for the governors irrespective of party affiliation.

Yari said one of such things was the bailout fund which was paid to all state governors to offset workers’ salaries and outstanding arrears.

The NGF chairman said the bailout was paid across the board, adding that the fund went a long way in improving a lot of people in the states.

He further said Buhari’s administration had also embarked on infrastructural development across states, saying it is another reason the governors were working to ensure his re-election.

He urged the governors, especially those in states controlled by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to coordinate door-to-door campaigns.

“As governors, the responsibility is on us to work for the actualization of President Buhari`s re-election come February 16,”

Naija News recalls that Governor Yari had declared readiness to support plans for the declaration of a state of emergency in his state, (Zamfara) due to unrepenting bandit attacks that led to the loss of  many lives and property last year.
