How Zamfara Workers Bid Governor Yari Farewell




Intrigue As Yari Set To Battle Uzor-Kalu, Umahi, Others For Senate Presidency

Civil servants in Zamfara state on Saturday bade the outgoing state Governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, farewell.

Naija News understands that the civil servants in the state wished the governor goodbye at the last Ramadan breakfast of his eight years tenure as governor of Zamfara state.

This Online News Platform Captured some of the messages of the civil servants in the state where some commended the Governor for his efforts in ensuring that the people of the state enjoy the dividends of democracy during his tenure.

A Labour Leader at the state, Bashir Mafara, at the governor’s private residence in Talata-Mafara, commended the governor for bringing development to the state in the last eight years.

Mafara while bidding the governor farewell said in his words; “Your Excellency has made remarkable achievements that have now made the state better than it was and your relationship with the workers have been relatively cordial.

“Sir, while commending you for the release of N2 billion recently to offset the backlog of pensions, we also want to plead with you to offset all outstanding debt before you finally exit next week.

“We wish you luck in all your future endeavours as you finally leave office as governor and pray that your successor continues with the good work.”

Similarly, the Speaker, Alhaji Sanusi Rikiji prayed to Allah not to put the governor to shame as he handed over. He assured the outgoing Governor that the state shall continue to follow the steps of the Governor. “we shall continue to follow your guide as our leader,” he said.

While speaking further, Rikiji urged all APC supporters in the state to be; “patient, steadfast and supportive of each other as we leave office and government as a party.”

Although Governor Yari had completed his tenure as Governor, the farewell wishes come after the Supreme court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, on Friday, May 24, dismissed an appeal challenging the nullification of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) primary elections in Zamfara state, northern Nigeria.

This online news platform understands that the apex court also voided all votes cast for the party during the general elections.

The five-member panel of justices, in a unanimous judgment, held that the APC in Zamfara state failed to conduct primaries in accordance with the party rules.
