Former Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, has dismissed reports that he is planning on dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking to supporters at his Talata Mafara residence, the former chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) said he has no intention of dumping the APC he helped to form.
Yari said that they were eleven governors as at then which initiated the formation of the APC.
According to him, after the party was formed, the then eleven Governors endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari to contest the presidential election in the 2015 general election.
“Therefore, there is no reason reasonable enough for me to dump the party I contributed to its development.
“Over the years, I have been nurturing and sponsoring the party in the state since the party was formed.
“Even if I return to the farm, I can never leave APC. I can only dump APC when I retire from active politics,” he said.
Speaking further, he advised Governor Matawalle to stop listening to Senator Ahmad Sani Yarima, warning that the lawmaker would put him into political trouble.
Alhaji Abdul Aziz Yari said the ‘confused’ Senator is into politics for selfish interest.
