Zamfara state Governor, Abdulazeez Yari has made it clear that he will not leave the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) but will remain it to fight injustice.
He 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.
“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.”
Governor Yari, who answered questions from news men today, Friday after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja accused the national body of the party of trying to produce governorship candidate for Zamfara State through the method which he described as crude.
He referred to section 87 of the party’s constitution is very clear of the Act that the party must follow a process before producing any candidate.
“Therefore, the most important thing is that we conducted election on the 3rd and 4th of October and all agencies INEC, Civil Defence, Police, and DSS were there and they signed for us and the report was written by the REC that elections were conducted.
“Unfortunately, for the INEC to say that there was no election, we don’t know where they got their information but we believe they have a report directly from the representative there, that election was held in Zamfara state. So, it depends on what they want to do.”
