Zamfara: How Corrupt, Greedy Yari Stole Billions – Fani-Kayode





Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has described former Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, as the most filthy, despicable, corrupt and greedy politician in Nigeria.

Naija News reports that the Sokoto Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arrested two Chinese men, Mr Meng Wei Kun and Mr Xu Koi.

The Chinese men were arrested last week for allegedly offering N50 million as a bribe to EFCC Zonal Head, Mr Abdullahi Lawal.

The anti-graft agency is probing a multi-billion Naira contract by a company, China Zhonghao Nig. Ltd.

China Zhonghao is handling N50 billion contracts awarded by the Zamfara State Government between 2012 and 2019.

Reacting in a post on Twitter, Fani-Kayode said Yari would have been arrested if he was in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Fani-Kayode wrote: “Abdulaziz Yari, the fmr. Gov. of Zamfara, is the most filthy, despicable, corrupt & greedy politician in Nigeria. While his people were being slaughtered, he stole billions.

“He awarded a contract of 60 billion to the Chinese, paid all the money upfront, and in the end, no work was done! Sadly, the whole thing is being covered up by the FG.

“If this had been a PDP Governor, he would have been prosecuted & sent to jail long ago.
